"Mass" Transit Ministry
Some STM members lack transportation on a temporary or more permanent basis, primarily our elderly, and volunteers in this ministry offer to pick up a fellow parishioner on their way to and from a weekend mass they would attend anyway. Volunteers are needed to be a driver, substitute driver, or to help with scheduling and communication.
Varies for drivers based on needs and schedule.
