Your Help Is Urgently Needed During Church Opening

We’re still in need of stewards to help during church opening hours/Masses. At the moment we have just enough to cover weekday shifts, but we still need a few more for the weekend shifts. For those who can’t commit on a regular basis, we also need people willing to cover occasional shifts or simply be a back-up for those who are volunteering on a regular basis.

The shifts are as follows:

  •  Tuesday to Thursday 8.50am -11.30am;
  •  Friday 5.20pm – 8pm;
  •  Saturday 11.15 – 2pm and 7.15pm – 9pm;
  •  Sunday from 10.15am – 1pm and 5.20pm – 8pm.

The duties of the stewards are to:

  • Welcome people into the church, inviting them to sanitise their hands, make them aware of the rules that need to be followed for everyone’s safety;
  • Hand out candles to whoever wants them, guide people to the altar during Holy Communion ensuring safety distance is maintained and help clean the church after closing.

If you can help please contact the parish office by email (mileend@rcdow.org.uk), by phone on 020 8980 1845.
