Martha Society

Service of ministry to all the People of God.


Work takes place on Saturday mornings, after the 7:45 AM Mass. The rotation would involve participation approx. 5 times each year.


       Martha Society members are responsible for the cleaning of the sanctuary, the sacristy, and for the general orderliness of the church in preparation for the weekend liturgies. Men and Women are involved in this ministry which follows the “directions” sheet distributed to each person. Each group of volunteers plans together the work that is needed and together performs the ministry.

A Martha Society member should have a love of liturgy and a reverence for the sacred space that is the gathering place for the people of God. The contact person for Martha Society volunteers usually schedules the groups for a year at a time. New volunteers are assigned to a team with experi-enced volunteers.
