Sacristans
Assistance needed at the St. Margaret Mass on Saturday evenings in preparing the Altar of Our Lord.

Only a love of Catholic Liturgy and reverence for the Sacred Altar are needed to serve. For more information, please contact Art Enderle or 704-708-9385.

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
Adult leaders are always needed for Children's Liturgy of the Word. Commitment involves preparing for the Gospel reading and being at your assigned Mass. CLOW provides an opportunity to share with the children the readings and Gospel in terms they understand. It is a very rewarding experience. Volunteers work a rotating schedule, typically once a month. We need volunteers for Sunday 10:45 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Shepherds are also needed. They are individuals who volunteer during Mass to assist the CLOW leader. Become engaged in the Mass and earn service hours. Volunteers must be sixth grade or above. Adult shepherds are welcome provided they have completed a Protecting God’s Children Workshop.

Adults interested in volunteering, please contact Julie Wright at 704-491-1924 or 704-384-5816. Training includes an orientation. Protecting God's Children Workshop is a requirement for anyone over 18 years. Shepherds must introduce themselves to the leader either in the Narthex before Mass or in the Daily Mass Chapel.
