This group of joyful volunteers prepare the altar, linens, candles and communion vessels for the hundreds of services we hold throughout the year.  Teams serve in rotation for one week each month. Their attentive work creates a fitting worship space for us all.   Contact Gino Fellin.
If you enjoy making new friends, this hospitality ministry is for you. Greeters work in rotation, one Sunday a month, by the door of the church before and after the services. They greet and welcome visitors, newcomers and fellow parishioners at Saint Boniface, and help them feel comfortable while worshiping with us. They invite people to Coffee Hour or other parish activities. For more information contact Alice Reid.
Saint Boniface has a five-octave set of Schulmerich hand bells which our Bell Choir rings at Sunday services and special services. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. in season.   Contact choirmaster James Guyer, (941)349-5616 x326.
Labyrinth Ministries members work to inform parishioners about the history and the benefits of the labyrinth. The Saint Boniface Labyrinth is based on the famous one found at Chartres Cathedral in France, with deep Christian symbolism. Labyrinths are used worldwide as a spiritual walk for serenity, insight and celebration. The members of the Labyrinth Ministries invite you to use our labyrinth any time of the year, and to join them at their various events throughout the year. 
Lay people are trained by the clergy to serve as Lay Readers and Chalice Bearers as part of the worship team at parish services, reading the lessons and intercessions, assisting in worship, and administering the chalice at Communion.   Contact Justin Miller.
Eucharistic Visitors carry the sacrament to homes and hospitals after the services on Sunday.  Training and supervision of these volunteers is done by the clergy.  EV visits ensure that "We who are many are one body becauses we all share one bread, one cup."  Contact Nikki Seger to participate or schedule a visit.
The Sound Team works during the Sunday services to manage the microphones and hearing systems in the church.  At a typical service there are two clergy head sets, the pulpit microphone, an altar mic, the hand held back up, choir mics to feed the video, and the hearing loop to be monitored.  This behind-the-scenes crew makes worship possible. Our goals are to make sure all can hear and no one notices our work.  Contact Jesse Munoz for information.
Our Ushers help parishioners and visitors feel welcome by greeting, distributing worship leaflets, assisting people to their seats, and collecting the offering. They serve in teams for Sundays and special services. Training and orientation is provided. Contact Gisela Vaughan.
Volunteers live stream and record our services, enabling those who cannot be with us to enjoy the worship, music and sermon.  Visitors and church shoppers also appreciate this tool to check out St. Boniface   To watch the video stream, click here and scroll to either the live option or the specific date you want to view.  For info contact Jesse Munoz.
