Office & Media Teams

At Our Lady of Fatima we are so very fortunate to have such a wonderful team of volunteers who have helped run the parish office as well as other media so smoothly. It all works like clockwork behind the scenes due to their commitment and dedication over the many years. There are so many roles to consider we've tried to include them all below:

Office Support Team

The Office Support Team do a tremendous job - they're always busy working on many projects as well as answering the phones, taking messages, sorting diary appointments and emails, greeting people and helping them with their enquiries, etc. These tasks can be anything from parents handing in forms, baptism certificate requests to wedding and funeral enquiries; helping with updating the weekly newsletter and keeping notices and posters up to date, etc.

Gillian has been the glue that has held this parish together for many, many years now so we are presently looking at sharing the work in order to alleviate her workload. As well as Gillian, Hilda has also been a member of the office team for some time too, dealing with all the registering and certificate enquiries. Hilda is also the Justice & Peace contact for our parish as well as dealing with Safeguarding. Marie and Sylvie have just joined the Office Support Team but we are still in need of other admin helpers to help man the office during our weekly opening hours.

The presbytery parish office is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm (closed for lunch between 1-2pm).

IT Team

Mark presently helps us out with our IT enquiries but it would be really helpful to have more than one member to help out when we encounter problems with our systems.

Website/Facebook Team 

Mark and Marie currently work on our website design and development - collecting, editing and updating content for both our site and facebook page. Anyone with web experience would be a very helpful addition to our small team. Also, we're always looking at ways of improving our site and facebook page so if you have any feedback/suggestions, they'd be very much appreciated. Please send us your comments using our Enquiry Form found under Contact Us.

Photography Team 

Mark is presently our official photographer with Marie as assistant when Mark is unavailable to take photos of the church and events. 

Videography Team 

At present this is a tiny team of one, video is captured by Marie on her little camera. We are therefore in need of more volunteers who have film experience and the right type of equipment - this would be really helpful in capturing our lovely celebrations.

Finance Team 

Pat has been a dedicated member of our parish since the beginning. He helped introduce Planned Giving and still helps with the cash counting, recording figures and other financial tasks.

Book & Ticket Sales Team 

Rafael and Marie presently sell books, dvds and cds at the end of the 11am mass and occasionally other masses. It would be really great if we could get more helpers to sell these items too.

Audio/Visual Team

We play many videos/music in the church, chapel and the school hall/playground and need help with our audio visual systems every so often. If anyone is an expert in this field, please let us know.

If you're interested in volunteering and joining any of our fabulous teams please contact the presbytery (parish office).
