Ministry Needs

Where do I fit in here? If you are asking yourself this question? Are you looking to find where you can fit into ministry here at St. Jerome? We believe Stewardship is a way of life inspired by the belief that we should thank God for all He has given us by giving back to our Church and community. We can help you find your place! Don’t see a ministry you are interested in? Please contact the parish office at 757-877-5021 and share your interests and ideas for any ministries.
Greeters:Isn’t it nice when someone welcomes you to church? Greeters present a welcoming hand, warm heart, and a friendly face to all parishioners and visitors who enter the doors of St. Jerome. Being a greeter is a great way to help others feel the love of Christ as they come to worship Him. We need greeters at all Masses. If you would like to meet others within the parish and share God’s love with them, become a greeter! Please contact the parish office at 757-877-5021 for more information
