Church Cleaners

The heart of this Ministry is the focus on service to the community through the maintenance of the Worship space. This Ministry offers the members the opportunity to spend quiet time in prayer while they serve in this ministry.

Not only does this Ministry assist in reducing the maintenance cost, it provides the opportunity to be part of the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Community of Service. Specifically, we clean the Altars, Holy Water fonts, Tabernacle Area, Sacristy and provide general church cleaning. Special Liturgical Seasons require additional tasks.

The workload is much lighter with many hands & yours are welcome. With more volunteers joining we are able to decrease the time necessary for the weekly cleaning.

The First Impression

When visitors come to a church and see unkempt restrooms, pews with old bulletins, or dust or dirt on the floor they may feel we don’t pay attention to other details. And, they may not come back. Little Things Mean a Lot!

The Church Cleaning Ministry ensures that our church is clean, organized and welcoming. Members of this Ministry can clean on Wednesday mornings after Mass.

Anyone can serve with this ministry –even children (with adult supervision) are welcome. Many families do this together. Little things do matter. Visitors notice things more than you realize.

What can you and your family can do to help?

Thanks for considering this request and if you would like to sign up, contact Judy Schwieterman or Arlene Lentsch at 489-4889.

Hospitality Ministry

Hospitality is the ministry that welcomes people and connects people to the life of the Church. An investment of time and talent in this hospitality ministry is an investment into every other ministry at our church.

The greeters are part of the hospitality ministry to provide a warm welcome to the people as they come to church. Their friendly greeting at the door of the church ensures that people will feel they belong and are accepted by our Lord and by our community.

Ushers welcome and seat parishioners and visitors, direct them at Communion time, help the handicapped feel more comfortable and take the offertory collection.

This is a wonderful way to minister to your church family if you have limited time and need to schedule your volunteer time. To get involved in the Hospitality Ministry, please contact Kathi Holt at (352) 489-4889 or email
