Volunteer

We are in dire need of volunteers to help as Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers to serve at Liturgy, visit the homebound and sick. This ministry is vital to the Christian community as it brings Christ to the people who cannot attend Mass due to illness.

Additionally, ministers serve at the Liturgy on Weekdays and Weekends and other special Masses. If you would like to help, please call the Parish Office at (954) 564-1763 to request a form and/or make an appointment with the Pastor. Thank you in advance for offering your time and talent to our Parish.

Come to me frequently before the Blessed Sacrament

The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship!

You are greatly needed!

Come to speak to Jesus and tell Him what is in your heart.

We need adorers every Thursday in the chapel.

“Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us.” - Saint Alphonsus Liguori

Come to the Parish Office if you would like to sign up for a scheduled hour with the Lord every week.
