Ministry Needs

parishministries
 
Where do I fit in here? If you are asking yourself this question? Are you looking to find where you can fit into ministry here at St. Jerome? We believe Stewardship is a way of life inspired by the belief that we should thank God for all He has given us by giving back to our Church and community. We can help you find your place! Don’t see a ministry you are interested in? Please contact the parish office at 757-877-5021 and share your interests and ideas for any ministries.
 
 
Greeters:Isn’t it nice when someone welcomes you to church? Greeters present a welcoming hand, warm heart, and a friendly face to all parishioners and visitors who enter the doors of St. Jerome. Being a greeter is a great way to help others feel the love of Christ as they come to worship Him. We need greeters at all Masses. If you would like to meet others within the parish and share God’s love with them, become a greeter! Please contact the parish office at 757-877-5021 for more information

Lectors: Do you have the gift of public speaking and want to share your talent with the community? If so, please consider being a lector to proclaim the word during the weekend Masses. We are in need of lectors to read at all of our Masses, (especially at 7:00am and 12noon Mass) If interested call the parish office at 757-877-5021.

Adult Choir: If  good vocal quality is your forte, please come forward and volunteer for this ministry as a choir member or cantor.  Thank you, Lord, for giving us the gift of music and for voices to sing your praises.  We release the talents you have given us to help others by providing beauty, joy, comfort and inspiration for our Liturgies.  Help us to stay committed to fulfill this work throughout the year.  If interested, please contact Louise Maurer through the church office at 877-5021.

Jesus Calms Water 

Jesus Calms Our Waters

In our lives, there are moments, when only Jesus can stop our torments. Those daily struggles that burden the soul, He comes to us and makes us whole.

Oh Jesus, calm the winds of fear we hide. Smooth the waves of greed and pride.Calm our storms of anger and hate.

Calm the storms that dim our sight, that block the path to your wonderful light. Calm the storms that lead us to sin. Give us courage, peace and love within.

Let us be a witness to those we meet, the rich, the poor, the stangers on the street. Let us serve them in this great land, for they too may have storms at hand.

Until our dying day, until we finally rest, help us rise each day and do our very best. Before the rains wash our strength away. Calm our storms Lord, each and every day.

Paul A. Jones
