Parish Reopening Plan and Call for Volunteers
Volunteers are needed to assist with various aspects of our parish reopening plan.
Importantly, leadership team members and volunteers must not be part of a “vulnerable population” (i.e., suffering from an underlying medical condition such as diabetes or lung disease; undergoing cancer treatment, etc.). Those over the age of 60 should consult with the Parish Leadership Team about possibly serving as a volunteer. Those under the age of 60, who are healthy with no underlying health conditions are asked to consider assisting with one of three reopening teams. Religious Education families, high school and college students,
as well as young adults, are especially encouraged to answer this call to volunteer for teams.
Specifically, here are the three teams being formed:
Set-up team. Sample duties include ensuring that all supplies needed for each sacramental celebration/gathering are ready for use, entrances and exits are marked and propped physically open prior to attendees’ arrival/departure, etc.
Greeting team. Sample duties include assisting in managing the flow of congregants as
they enter the church, keeping attendance to 10 people or less at all times, making sure attendees use hand sanitizer upon entering, are wearing a mask, and are reminded not to enter if ill; directing people to appropriate seating/waiting areas, etc.
Cleaning team. Sample duties include maintaining and cleaning essential and trafficked areas of the church before and after the church has been used. Masks and gloves will be provided if you do not have your own. All approved cleaning/disinfecting supplies will be provided.
