Evening Office Volunteer
on Barbara Painter
Painter joined St. Noel in 1995. Shortly after that she received
a phone call requesting her to work in the office during the evenings.
It has evolved to become the 2nd, 4th & 5th Wednesday
nights from 5:30 or 6 until 7:30 - 9 p.m. depending on what is going
on in the church. Coming right from her full time job, she
enjoys the peaceful setting after a more stressful workday. In
her day job she's totally responsible. But in this job she feels
she can be more responsive to people without other responsibilities.
"I really feel God's presence here so never feel afraid."
As the "face of St. Noel"
to our evening visitors, Barb greets those who come in for meetings
or may need the office equipment during a GIFT session, makes phone
calls, answers the phone or does some filing.
