For continuity, volunteers follow the same crochet pattern to make and stuff these precious bears. Care Bears are blessed, and then given to children and people who need special comfort in their lives. Call the parish office at 409-948-8448, or stop by to pick up the pattern.
Money counters work in small teams to count money received from the weekend offertory. Training is provided. Contact the Parish Office if interested in serving on a team.
Parish Office Volunteers
Volunteers are an integral part of the daily parish office routine. Volunteers come to the office as scheduled to answer phones, help the staff and assist visitors. They may stuff inserts into parish bulletins, prepare mailings or complete other general tasks. Regular and substitute office volunteers are needed throughout the year. If you would like to be on the Parish Office Volunteer list, please contact Sally Vasquez at 409-948-8448.
Prayer Blanket Ministry
The prayer blanket ministry began at St. Mary of the Miraculous Medal in April of 2001. Since then, more than 5,000 blankets have been produced and distributed to physically and emotionally distressed men, women and children of our parish and far beyond. The ministry is comprised of volunteers who commit to constructing a small lap size blanket which is prayed over during construction, blessed by a member of the clergy and then given to those suffering from serious illnesses, assuring them that they are not alone in their struggles and are covered in prayer by an entire community and a simple faith filled blanket. The recipients are then put on a prayer list and are lifted in prayer each week. You may become involved in the Prayer Blanket Ministry by contacting the Parish Office.
St. Fiacre Gardens Ministry
Many hands are needed to keep our beautiful flower beds looking clean and weed free. Ministry members meet on the first Saturday of each month for a monthly workday. We are blessed to have landscape professionals in our parish to guide and give instructions for the ongoing care of our landscaped areas which you can then help with once a month or as needed. Come and learn how easy it is to keep our home looking beautiful! Contact the parish office for more information.
