Other office tasks often pop up, and it great to have extra help on these occasions.
Members of the Cathedral Cleaning Ministry meet every second Tuesday from 9am for about an hour to clean the Cathedral. A clean and well maintained Cathedral creates the atmosphere for people to meet and worship Jesus Christ. Cleaning is usually followed with a cuppa in the parish center afterwards.
