Saint Joseph Catholic Community
Marthas

Who are the Marthas?

We are church members who carefully launder the purificators and towels used at daily and weekend masses using a prescribed procedure. Currently each of us is responsible one week approximately every other month.  If we get additional volunteers it could be less often.

Soiled laundry is collected and returned twice during the week – once after the weekend masses (so clean linens are available for the weekday masses) and once again on Friday (so clean linens are available for all the weekend masses).

Most purificators are permanent press fabric and easily pressed.  Towels are folded but are not ironed.

If you are interested in joining this ministry, please contact the church at 321-727-1565.
