“Whatever you did to one of the least of my brothers, you did it for me.” (Matthew 25:40)
As we continue to respond to the growing needs during the coronavirus precautionary period, we have new and/or altered needs during Mass. Some of those are:
Greeters – can you arrive 20-30 minutes early to help greet our brothers and sisters in Christ? Pick your Mass!
Livestreaming Mass & PowerPoint Operations – Pick your Mass! Can you arrive 15 minutes early and help with the camera operations during Mass? The cameras are already fixed on the wall. There is a desk set up in the choir room that has the coordinating equipment needed to operate the cameras (computer, monitors to see what’s on the camera, joy stick to operate movement). It’s pretty simple if you’re comfortable with a computer – we train and there are notes for assistance.
Turn on the camera approximately 10-15 minutes before the Saturday 4:00 pm Mass starts. Zoom in and zoom out. At the other Masses, we are in need of someone to switch the PowerPoint slides during the songs.
You will still be able to participate in most of the Mass – and most importantly – receive Jesus in the Eucharist!
Turn off camera after Mass has ended. For more information, please email Holly Michelcavage.
Beaumont Eucharistic Ministers Needed
Every Sunday, directly from the 8:00 am Mass, ministers bring Holy Communion to a limited number of Catholics who desire the Sacrament at Troy Beaumont. We are very low on active ministers who serve on Sundays at this time. See here for more details.
Coffee & Donuts – Hospitality
Will you help us? We need you!
Coffee & Donuts (usually on Sundays after the 8 am & 10 am Masses) has been a treasure for decades to St. Anastasia and is a huge ministry unto itself! We provide this much loved ministry for approximately 40 Sundays a year – and it takes many, many, many hands & hearts to make it run smoothly!
Currently, we are in tremendous need of more ministers! You may select the dates and times you wish to serve at. The goal is to have everyone serve just once a month.
Volunteers Needed for SOS
This year, as we have done in the past, St. Anastasia Parish will be supporting ‘host’ parishes that are assisting South Oakland Shelter (SOS) members and their needs. If you are not familiar with SOS, they are an organization focused on helping people who find themselves in need of temporary shelter. The individuals that are assisted are usually employed with the hope is that this short term assistance that will help them through a challenging time in their lives. In many instances, this aid leads to them establishing a new lease on life. A wonderful cause indeed.
If you would like to be involved in the winter of 2021 please email Kim.
