Hospital Visitation Volunteers

Want to make a difference with a fellow member of Calvary who is hospitalized? It’s easy and rewarding…Just meet with the Hospital Chaplain for a brief interview and guidance. You will also have your picture taken and receive an ID badge that you will need to wear when visiting.
What’s involved? You will visit Calvary members hospitalized at St. Joseph’s Hospital on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s best to visit in the morning but any time is fine if it works best for you. On Sunday’s bring a few church bulletins to share with members.
Please call Dorothy Meyer 218-255-4853 or Renee Brauer 206-434-1950 for more information.
Thank you from Calvary’s Caring & Outreach committee
Altar Guild
Help is needed on the Altar Guild.
The purpose of the Altar Guild is to serve. Service requires a spiritual commitment and it has a spiritual goal.
We serve by doing the following:

  • Clean and store the sacramental vessels and linens.
  • Change the Eternal Candle and check other candle heights.
  • Serve with four other members at communion services.
All this is done for the Glory of God and the building up of His people.
