There are many ways you can help, and here you will see just some of the various opportunities available with Our Mother of Good Counsel and local community programs. This list is far from complete, so if you know of any other opportunities, please email us!
If you would like to join other parishioners to promote faith and service through one of our parish programs, or just help out wherever you can, please see our Get Involved! form.
Each summer, we are in need of additional drivers because some of our regular drivers are away during this time. If you can afford some time during the summer months of June, July and August, so that we can contact you if and when a parishioner needs a ride for a doctor appointment, hospital visit or shopping, please contact Sr. Anne by phone (610.525.0147 ext 234) or email.
Periodically throughout the year, our parish provides a simple reception after an event of special importance. Setting up for these receptions has fallen on the members of the Parish Council. We would like to form a group of men and women in the parish whom we could call on to help us set up for the reception in either our gym or social center, host the event, and assist in cleaning up afterwards. All of these events, (maybe 4 or 5 a year) usually occur on weekends. If you would like to offer your time and talent to this parish endeavor of hospitality and community building, the Parish Council and Parish Staff would be very grateful. If you can help, please contact Sr. Anne by phone (610.525.0147 ext 234) or email.
Hosts for Hospitals
Hosts for Hospitals is a non-profit agency that provides free lodging and support at volunteer-host homes as a caring response to the housing needs of patients and their families who come to our area for specialized medical care. Being a host is easy, as you only have to provide a clean bathroom, a comfortable bed and a feeling of home. You only lodge guests whom you want, when you want and for how long you want. Guests themselves are responsible for their own food and transportation. If you or someone you know may be interested in learning more about becoming a host family, or about HfH in general, please email Tammy Forstater or visit www.HostsForHospitals.org.
Meals on Wheels
Main Line Meals on Wheels always needs volunteers on weekdays to help pack and deliver meals to the homebound in the Main Line area. You would report to their office at Bryn Mawr Hospital at 9:30 a.m. to pack or 10:30 a.m. to deliver. The deliveries generally take about an hour and a half to complete. You can volunteer on a regular basis (i.e. weekly, every other week, monthly) or as a substitute. For additional information, please call 610.526.3097.
We are looking for “shopping” volunteers to assist parishioners who need assistance with their grocery shopping. It may involve driving, assisting in shopping and helping to put the items away. The volunteer time commitment is a few hours a couple times a year. If you are interested in helping, please contact Sr. Anne by phone (610.525.0147 ext 234) or email.
