Can you help make friendly phone calls?

     

We are both dedicated and excited at the opportunity to make sure that each parishioner at St. Anastasia knows about the chance to get their picture in our Pictorial Directory!  This directory will be a historical issue – a celebration of 50 years as a parish in the Troy community and we don’t want any one to miss it!  For their participation, they will receive one FREE 8 x 10 color portrait and one FREE directory (the directory will not available for purchase – in order to receive one you must participate).

Many hearts and hands are needed to make phone calls from our parish offices inviting fellow parishioners to participate and schedule their family’s photography session.  (Script provided!) Minimal computer skills are helpful, and we will show you the rest!  Click here to see time slots available.

Because the offices close at 5 pm during the summer (and earlier Fridays and Saturdays) we REALLY need those of you who are available during the day!   Please sign up for one or more shifts! Also, you are invited to share this link with others that may be able to lend a hand.   The timelines given are estimated times.  If you need special times or have any questions, please contact Brenda Kozlowski, Parish Life @ gro.a1503563044isats1503563044anats1503563044@iksw1503563044olzoK1503563044B1503563044 or call 248-689-8380 ext 103.

Thank you so much for your gift of time to our beloved brothers and sisters in Christ!
