The Diocese of Rochester and the Gates Catholic Community is committed to the safety and well-being of our youth and vulnerable adults.  In ensuring this safety and well-being the diocese has created a mandatory workshop and background check for any adult having direct contact with our youth and vulnerable adults.  The two hour workshop, “Creating a Safe Environment” and subsequent confidential background check is provided at no charge to any adult wishing to assist directly with our youth and vulnerable adults. Please contact the Parish Office for further information.

FIRST SERVE 

FIRST SERVE is a program where you can volunteer for a ONE TIME, NO STRINGS ATTACHED, and TAKE A TEST DRIVE in any ministry.  Join the Choir, Altar Servers, Lectors, Parish Life, Bible Study, Men’s Club, Buildings and Grounds, Festival Committee, Sisters in Christ, Sparkle Workers (Clean Church), Visitation to Homebound and Hospitals, Welcoming Committee, etc.
IMAGINE IF EVERYONE IN THIS CHURCH VOLUNTEERED FOR SOMETHING EVEN ONE TIME.

The story below is a perfect example of how our First Serve initiative would help serve our community greatly.

Co-Coordinator Needed
Martha Ministry at Holy Ghost


The Martha Ministry, which provides a lunch reception after funerals, is in need of a co-coordinator to work with the current coordinator. This ministry would involve ordering the cold cut tray and rolls as well as upkeep of the inventory of paper products, condiments and hot/cold beverages. This is a very energetic and well-established ministry. There is great team work and support. Contact Michelle Peter at the parish office for more information.

“TEST DRIVE” OUR FIRST SERVE INITIATIVE . . . 
There are many “Odd Jobs” around the GCC campuses that would be a once a year or a one time only task that you could offer your time and talent to. 

If you would like to register at one of our churches, please click on "Register", print out the regisration form and then drop it in the mail or the collection basket at any weekend mass.
