Art & Environment Volunteers Needed

Interior“It is more blessed to give than to receive.”- Acts 20:35

Do you feel called to be one of the caretakers of the church environment?
Do you enjoy working with flowers & plants? 
Do you enjoy doing something creative? 

With the stepping down of our A & E Coordinator, we are in need of volunteers to care for the church and prepare the environment for liturgical seasons.  Many hands make a happy parish and there is a role for everyone!  The A & E Committee needs a new coordinator, co-coordinator and volunteers for various duties.  Pat Linder has done an outstanding job of organizing all the pertinent information and compiling it for ease of implementing.  Please prayerfully consider what role you are called to fill:
A & E Coordinator
A & E Co-Coordinator
Volunteers for watering & general upkeep (on a rotating basis)
Advent and Christmas set-up
Lent and Easter set-up

For more information about exactly what each role entails, contact Lisa at 454-7172.  Our hope is to have many hands to help so that the tasks are shared and many are given the opportunity to serve in preparing the environment for the liturgy.
