Parish Vacancies

We are looking for volunteers who would like to support the parish in the following areas:

Stewards for the Sunday 11.30am Mass

Stewards are responsible for opening and closing the church building and the car park as well as helping to get the church ready for Mass. You will also meet and greet parishioners and visitors as they arrive. Full training will be given.

Readers for the Sunday 11.30am Mass

Being a reader is an important ministry. Readers bring the living Word of God to the congregation and so the ministry of the Word should be treated seriously and with great dignity. The Word of God is not simply read during the liturgy, it is proclaimed, but not with theatrical show. It involves delivering the message with clarity, conviction and appropriate pace. It demands the ability to evoke faith in others by demonstrating one’s own faith.

The Word of God also needs to be understood and therefore we are looking for readers preferably over the age of 13.

Church Cleaners

We are looking to create another 2 teams of cleaners, who are available to clean on a Wednesday any time or Saturday early morning. At the moment we have only 2 teams, which means they have to clean every fortnight. The more teams we have, the less often each team has to clean! Guidance and cleaning materials will be provided.

If you are on your own or a couple and would like to help, we can group you with other volunteers.

Offertory Collectors

We will soon be returning to having offertory collection bags during the weekend Masses. We need 2 people at each of these Masses who can collect the bags and pass them round. We would like to build up teams of volunteers for each Mass who can then perform this function on a rota basis.

If you are interested in any of these positions or would like more information, please contact the Parish Office via email at perivale@rcdow.org.uk or by telephone 020 8997 3164.
