Reopening Volunteers Are Much Needed!

We at Saint Clement are so happy that we have begun reinstating liturgical and communal prayer life for our parish and for those in our area who are looking for a place and a community with whom to worship and come together, though in limited ways. We are doing everything we can to pray together in ways that are both meaningful and safe. To be a welcoming and hospitable parish and worship site, our people need to feel confident that we are following CDC, State of Illinois, City of Chicago, and Archdiocese of Chicago guidelines and recommendations. Coming together as a parish only makes sense if our hospitality is grounded in safety and consideration of the well being of all who may choose to be present with us.

This is made possible by a large cadre of volunteers who are both greeting people, ensuring health safety measures such as masks and hand sanitizing, and then seating people in ways that are in strict compliance with social distancing recommendations. We have another team of people who clean and disinfect the Church after each gathering, so as to continue our protocols for ensuring safety for participants, liturgical ministers, staff, and clergy. Thank you so much to our current volunteers! We could not reopen without you!

Volunteer Needs

Greeters and Disinfecting Team Members:

We are very much in need of a much larger groups of greeters and disinfecting team members in order to continue to offer a safe environment for our praying community. We will provide training for these roles and most important, you will know that you are making it possible for people to attend Mass, and celebrate the sacraments, such as Baptisms and Reconciliation. These roles are so vital because without these people, we cannot safely reopen our Church for worship.

Livestreaming Ministry Members:

We are in need of volunteers to assist with operating our live-streaming system during Sunday Mass. If you have an interest in working with technology as well as video and sound production, we would love to talk with you!  The time commitment is minimal and all Mass volunteers have advance access to reservations for their household when they volunteer at Mass.
