PARISH VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
New Parishioners Ministry!
Our goal is to personally reach out to new parishioners and make them feel welcome and loved at Our Lady of Fatima. We are planning on doing this by looking for a team of volunteers to meet one on one with a new parishioner. On average, a volunteer would meet with a new parishioner once every two months. This would entail calling/emailing the new parishioner, meeting with them one on one at Our Lady of Fatima Parish, and showing Christ’s love to them by creating friendships with them. Contact or Danielle Jones at 303-233-1283 or
Fatima Mass Greeters
Would you like to become a Greeter for weekend Mass? We invite you to sign up and try it out! We especially need Greeters for Saturday 5 pm and Sunday 5 pm Masses. Being a Greeter is simple! We arrive 15-20 min. early to Mass and station ourselves at an exterior door of the church. As people arrive, we offer a friendly hello and open the door. If you are feeling a nudge from the Holy Spirit, email Elisa Foster. To see a greeter in action, click
. Thank you for prayerfully considering helping welcome the Lord’s flock to the Supper of the Lamb!
