Dear Liturgical Ministers,


In order to accommodate you, the liturgical ministers of St. Pius X, I am continuing the practice of allowing you to use SignUpGenius.com to select the dates, times and ministries that you would like to serve at for the next three months.  By doing it this way, those of you who wish to serve more have the option to do so


If you choose to use the SignUpGenius.com program to serve as a liturgical minister, you might be added to the schedule on different dates and times based on the need for ministers.  However, these additions will be in keeping with your preferences (e.g. once a month, no consecutive weeks, etc.).


If you choose not to use SignUpGenius, the schedule will be generated as per usual.  After the schedule is generated, it will be placed on SignUpGenius.com so you will still be able to swap, delete and add dates and times as you need to.


In keeping with tradition, I am asking that you note any changes in your preferences for when you serve, when you want to be scheduled and when you are not available to serve.  Click to Download the form to fill out and return.
