Volunteers Some Time
We are not looking for hours upon hours or a full-time commitment. Any time you can volunteer will be welcomed.
Here is a sampling:
Lecturers, Eucharistic Ministers and Ushers
If you attend a daily Mass or a particular Sunday Mass, we are always looking for volunteers to read the Readings,
assist Father with Communion and help with ushering duties. None of these are time consuming and require little training.
The Altar Society are those wonderful volunteers that keep our Church neat, clean and attractive.
They currently meet in the Church on Saturday after the 9:00am Mass,. If that isn’t a convenient time, we are flexible.
Again, not a very time intense commitment.
Please contact us at St. Christopher Parish Office - 130 Midland Avenue, (718) 351-2452 or at
St. Margaret Mary Office - 560 Lincoln Avenue, (718) 351-2612 or
or by email - Contact Us.
Faith Formation Committee
To keep our church and faith strong and create an environment of growth, we need your help!
It is now time for all of us to stand up and support our church. We have three major goals:
(1) We need to have a home for practicing Catholics to hear, feel and live the spirit of Jesus.
(2) We need to extend ourselves to have our non-practicing Catholic family members, friends and neighbors
return to the Word of God.
(3) We need to spread the Words of Jesus to our non-Catholic friends and neighbors and warmly invite them into our family.
This is not a fund drive. We aren’t asking for any money. What we are requesting is your input and time.
The Faith Formation Committee approaches these goals through spiritual and social events throughout the year.
Your participation is vital. Please click here for additional information.
