Church Environment

.

The Church Environment Ministry creates an environment in the Church and sanctuary area that is tasteful, welcoming, simple, beautiful, and points all to the wonder and awe of God.  It helps to create a space which enhances our encounter with the living God through our liturgies.


The dedicated members of this ministry meet as needed to prepare for the specific liturgical seasons. The Church Environment Ministry works with talented volunteers to select flower arrangements that enrich our worship space.  In addition to plants and flowers, the Church Environment Ministry use a wide variety of items to enhance the liturgies; items such as religious vessels, banners, pots, ribbons, cloth, wood and dried foliage. The Church Environment Ministry does not have regularly scheduled meetings. Meeting periodically, according to the upcoming liturgical season, is how the Church Environment Ministry prepares.


The Church Environment Ministry always is looking for new members. This team is always looking for people with sewing skills, with flower arrangement skills, people with a good eye for a tasteful atmosphere.  We need many helping hands during the busy seasons preparing for Easter and Christmas.

Anyone interested in being part of this ministry may contact Mary Lou Smythe at (941) 698-2410 or complete the Volunteer Information Request Form below.

Volunteer Information Request Form

I am interested in receiving information and/or talking with a Ministry Leader regarding the following Ministry. I have reviewed the information on the webpage regarding this Ministry and would be interested in speaking with the Ministry Leader.

I understand that if I decide to join in this ministry, I will need to complete a Volunteer Application Form and, as a part of the Diocese of Venice Safe Environment requirements, all volunteers must take a Safe Environment Training program. Some volunteer opportunities involving children and vulnerable adults also require a fingerprint and background check. (The Parish will pay the fee for this).

Please fill in contact information below.

A Ministry Leader will be in contact with you in the immediate future. Thank you for your interest in sharing your time and talent.
