St. Mary's Parish

The parish has many needs to keep the buildings and facilities cleaned to serve the total parish.  There are various teams of people that look after different areas that require weekly attention.  Some of these teams alternate so that the burden is lightened.

All members of the parish are invited to help as best they can in accomplishing some of these tasks. Cleaning includes vacuuming, dusting, and general cleaning in the Church and Parish Center.  Most of these tasks can accomplished more efficiently with a larger team of individuals.  Nonetheless, any amount of time that a Parishioner can donate towards the effort is greatly appreciated.

Sacristy cleaning involves the polishing and upkeep of the chalices, ciborium, paten, and Altar Cross.  On average, one person can accomplish this in two hours on a weekly basis.  This can be completed at the convenience of the individual.
