Toni is helping prepare for an outdoor Baptism to welcome one of the newest member of the Saint Anselm community.

Please complete the contact form at the bottom of the page or call the Rectory to express your desire to get involved. No commitment is too small. Thank you in advance for the gift of your time and talent.


Outdoor Mass Help – Are you able to give a little time so people unable to attend indoor mass can worship safely in their cars or distanced in chairs? People are needed for setup and breakdown, to greet cars as they arrive, and to ensure a safe parking experience by directing traffic. The time commitment is minimal but the impact great.

Greeters– Provide a warm welcome on Saturdays 5 pm Indoor Mass or Sundays 11 AM Outdoor Mass.
