GET INVOLVED AT POP

Are you interested in serving at Mass?

From Ushers and Greeters, to Readers and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Altar Servers and those who want to assist at the Mass and those who wish to serve "Behind-the-Scenes" with altar linens or candles we're always looking for committed individuals to participate in various areas of the mass. 

We are a parish that embraces and promotes the stewardship way of life as exemplified by Jesus Christ. We seek to grow in gratitude for our abundant blessings, to challenge ourselves to stretch beyond what is comfortable, and to sacrifice. We share our presence, our prayers, our gifts and our service to continue Christ’s mission of transforming the world one person at a time.
