Volunteer Opportunities

LOVE BUGS PRESCHOOL: Our Lady of Mercy Preschool is looking for volunteers to help out next year.

THE DEACON’S CLOSET: This ministry assists those who cannot afford medically required equipment to assist with in home care with items such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, canes, walkers, commodes, etc. If you have any of these items and are not using them, please consider donating them to the Deacon’s Closet at Our Lady of Mercy Parish. If you need the use of items or want to donate, please call 585-813-3588. There is no charge for the use of equipment.

OUTREACH MINISTRY: The Outreach Ministry volunteers visit the shut-ins and those in nursing homes every month. Volunteers bring prayer cards, bulletins and at Christmas time they bring poinsettias to those they are visiting. This ministry is looking for more volunteers to help out. It takes only a couple of days per month and volunteers sign up for one month a year. If this is something you’d like to hear more about, contact Kathleen Steen at 768-7346.
