JOB OPPORTUITY AT OUR PARISH--St. Faustina Parish is actively seeking a part-time Custodian/ Maintenance Worker who will assist in ensuring that the parish facilities are in good working order and condition at all times. The job description, requirements, and application form link can be found on our web page by clicking on the PARISH JOB OPENING link. Please do not call the Parish office about this opportunity.

THE 2019 MASS INTENTION BOOK IS NOW OPEN FOR SCHEDULING--Reminder of the new procedures we had to install back in March of 2017 in order to be fair to all. Because we have grown somewhat, Parishioners/requesters may offer NO MORE than 3 Masses per month. Requesters are only permitted ONE intention per month on the WEEKEND, and 2 intentions per month on weekdays. Masses must be paid for at time they are put in the book. If someone calls to “hold a date”, there is no guarantee it will be held for more than 5 business days. Customary offering of $10.00 per intention must be in hands of parish office to finalize scheduling. Only one intention per Mass unless from same family (no more than 3 names) and approved by Pastor. Again, to be fair to all, this is done on a first come/first serve basis. Preferred manner of scheduling is to come to parish office. NO PRIVATE INTENTIONS will be scheduled on Christmas, Easter, Mother’s & Father’s Day, All Souls day, Thanksgiving Day, Holy Thursday and any others blocked off by Pastor. Due to Pastor’s Obligation to offer Mass for the Parishioners weekly, there will be one weekend Mass set aside for that on a rotating basis. Please be understanding of the need for these procedures and be kind to the staff.
MEMORIALIZING OPPORTUNITIES are still available for 15 more chairs located in the back. If you are interested in memorializing a chair, please contact the office. There is a seating chart of all the previously memorialized chairs in the glass bulletin board outside of the usher’s room in the church.
ALTAR FLOWERS--If you would like to donate funds for altar flowers in memory of a loved-one...or just because...please call the office between 10 am and 4 pm Monday thru Thursday and someone would be more than happy to make that happen for you.
