If you would like to be involved in doing good works, we want you! Annunciation has many opportunities to help others in our parish.
Eucharistic Ministry to the Homebound
On a weekly basis, communion is brought to people who are not able to get to church. We also provide meals for those in need after hospitalization, a stay in a nursing home, or illness.
To support our families in their time of grief, the Funeral Ministry helps coordinate services for each funeral.
Team Leaders: The team leaders take responsibility for coordinating the luncheon when one is scheduled. They are present to coordinate all that is done to get ready for the luncheon: setting the tables, preparing the food to be served, and directing the cleanup.
Callers: The callers contact volunteers for set-up, serving the meal, clean-up, and for making bars. Due to the nature of the ministry, the calling is infrequent but very rewarding.
Servers: Setting up takes approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours. Serving the meal takes approximately 1 hour. Cleaning up and helping with dishes takes 1 to 1 ½ hours.
Baking: Time commitment varies, depending on what you bake.
Grief Support Ministry
People who have experienced death of a loved one participate in the support series and may desire to be trained as a small group facilitator.
Ministry of Prayer
People who are homebound continue their connection to parish life by praying for the needs of the parish community.
A weekly visit is made to the nursing home by the volunteer group. Residents are gathered together for prayer and communion.
