Every month our Outreach Committee makes soups and salads for local people in need. This ministry also collects supplies, food, and clothing, especially winter coats, hats and gloves for our cold weather months on a monthly basis. For more information, please contact Carol Zimmerman at the5zs@aol.com.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry makes prayer shawls for people who are sick or in the hospital. All are welcome to join us as we serve! For more information, contact Georgine McCarthy at gmccarthy0982@comcast.net.

Bread Bakers

These are parishioners who love to bake, providing us with our weekly communion bread. Formally known as the St. Nicholas Guild, our bakers use a recipe that has been in our parish for many years, giving a tremendous feeling of continuity to this ministry. If you are interested in joining the bakers, contact Georgine McCarthy at gmccarthy0982@comcast.net.

Flower Guild

Flower Guild members arrange the flowers for the altar each Sunday. The Guild is made up of parishioners who love flowers and want to share that love with God and the parish family. No experience in flower arranging is necessary—beginners are paired with the more experienced. We have a lot of fun and are always looking for new faces and ideas! If you are interested in joining the Flower Guild, contact Joan Shrimpton at joaniebear@live.com 

Lay Eucharistic Visitors

For those who are unable to attend regular services, the sacrament of Holy Communion is always available. Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEVs) are parishioners who are specially trained to bring communion to those in need. Any pastoral needs and prayer requests of the recipients are brought back to the community. This is an important way that our parish community stays in touch. When sacraments are needed on an emergency basis, please contact Father Michael at 303-907-6282.

If you would like to be visited by Lay Eucharistic Visitors or are interested in becoming one, contact Father Michael at rectorcot@gmail.com.
