  • VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

    Ministry of Prayer
    When parishioners are facing challenges, we are often unsure how to help. Prayer, in a variety of forms, is a very powerful way we can help fellow parishioners. To learn more about how you can help, contact Casey Green at 651.429.7771 or cjgreen@stmarys-wbl.org.

    • Prayer Network – Support the intentions and special needs of parishioners through prayer.
    • Prayer Shawl – Provide comfort to those in need through knitting, crocheting and distributing prayer shawls.
    • Rosary Makers – Spread the joy of the rosary through making and repairing rosaries for those in the community.
    • Vigil for Life – Pray for the dignity and respect of all human life in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.

    Senior Programming
    Senior citizens play an important role in the parish and the larger church. How can you become involved with our senior community?

    We are in need of volunteers to bring the Blessed Sacrament, prayers and fellowship to residents of local senior apartments and care centers. We’re also in need of volunteers to serve as one-on-one “companions for the day” at The Gathering, a weekly respite program for caregivers to those with early to mid-term memory loss.

    Our senior parishioners may have challenges attending Mass on a regular basis or staying informed of parish activities. Volunteers are needed to connect with these parishioners at least annually to inform them of parish news, pray with them and listen.

    And – if you are a born organizer who loves to plan events, we are in need of people to plan socially and spiritually enriching programs for seniors.

    To learn more, contact Casey Green at 651.429.7771 or cjgreen@stmarys-wbl.org.

    Social Justice
    As part of St. Mary’s mission to Know, Follow and Share Jesus, we are called to act with justice in our local community. Opportunities to help promote social justice are available within our parish. To learn more, contact Casey Green at 651.429.7771 or cjgreen@stmarys-wbl.org.

    • Human Trafficking – Help eradicate human trafficking through education and advocacy and support victims of human trafficking through charitable drives.
    • Legislative Action – Work with other faith-based organizations to advance the Catholic justice tradition in local, state and federal legislation.
    • Fair Trade – Sell fair trade certified products (coffee, chocolates, etc.) after Mass on a monthly basis.
