This past Sunday at the Latin Mass at Sacred Heart Church in Hollister, Chaplain Fr. Nicholas Milich mentioned in his sermon the need for parishioners to get more involved. Many people have asked how they can help; here is a list of needs and who to contact. Please contact one or more of the following people after Mass, or email Latin Mass Secretary June Ely and mention what area you would like to assist in.

Altar Servers -  This is the greatest area of need. All men and boys who have received First Communion are encouraged to learn how to serve at the altar. For more information on how you can serve, contact Altar Server coordinator Adam Nannini.
Music - You do not need to be a professional, or even musically trained.  Just a voice, a willingness to learn, and a desire to worship is needed.  Practice is held an hour before Mass. To inquire about joining the Schola, contact Music Director Greg Plese.
Hospitality -  There is coffee and snacks after each Sunday Mass, if you would like to bring some food, or help set up or take down, contact Susie AmRhein.
Outreach & General Help - If you would like to help hand out Latin Mass information cards, welcome newcomers, put out flyers, or any other general help areas, contact Latin Mass Secretary June Ely.

All are invited to Low Mass for the Feast of the Assumption on Monday, August 15th., at 5:30 pm at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Hollister. Fr. Nicholas A. Milich will be the celebrant. Please note that the highways into Hollister at that time of day have a lot of traffic, so more time will be needed to get to Mass.
