Volunteer Opportunities


Below are opportunities to volunteer at SMI! 
Follow links under certain ministries/events to sign-up 



Art & Environment Needs Help this Advent

Art and Environment is looking for volunteers with an artistic eye and a love for the liturgy to help set-up the church leading up to Advent and Christmas.  If you’re available during the middle of the week on November 28th, December 7th, and the days leading up to Christmas, we’d love to have your assistance!  Contact Rosemary Tack at rosemarytack@yahoo.com for more information.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word Needs Leaders

Children from Pre-School through 2nd grade, who haven’t made their First Holy Communion, are welcome to participate in Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the 9:00 am Sunday English Mass, the 9:00 am Polish Mass, and the 12:15 pm Spanish Mass.  Volunteers are needed to help share the Gospel message with these young children.  Training and materials are provided.  Protecting God’s Children and a background check are required.  Contact Laura Van Ham at lvanham@smip.org or 815-436-2651, x887.

Eucharistic Adoration Needs Adorers

Adorers are greatly needed for the overnight hours in our Adoration Chapel.  If you are a night owl, consider spending some of that time visiting with Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration.  There are day time and evening hours open as well.  To sign up for a Holy Hour call 815-603-2350 or email adorationsmip@gmail.com.

Temple Tenders New Members Welcome

Every Monday morning, following the 7:30 am Mass, a group of dedicated parishioners clean the church, wash the windows, vacuum the carpets, clean the sanctuary and check the pews.  New volunteers are always welcome.  Please contact Steve Perez at sperez@smip.org or 815-436-2651, x820 for more information.

Youth Ministry Needs Adult Chaperones

Our youth ministry program is inviting adults to help with planning and chaperoning various events.  A desire to be a positive influence in the lives of high school teens is critical.  Commitments can be for specific events or for more extended programs.  Protecting God’s Children and a background check are required.  Contact Dianne Rostollan at drostollan@smip.org or 815-436-2651, x814.

Could You Spend a Few Minutes Helping After Weekend Mass?

On occasion, we have sign-ups for parish-wide events in the Narthex or Commons after our weekend Masses.  We would like to establish a team of volunteers to call upon, on rotation, to help fellow parishioners register for specific events.  It would only require spending a few minutes more at the parish after Mass.  Contact Laura Van Ham at lvanham@smip.org or 815-436-2651, x887.
