We deep clean the church, narthex, baptistery, and sacristy / sanctuary.  In the Spring and in the Fall, we schedule to meet on 2-3 consecutive Mondays, focusing on a different part of the church each Monday until the entire church is cleaned.

Depending on the number of workers we wash pews and kneelers, survey the kneelers for malfunctions, remove candlewax after Easter vigil, polish marble, clean doors and windows, the confessionals, and lightly mop the floor. This is somewhat strenuous work: there is a lot of bending, climbing on stools, reaching, etc.  but we’re in good company the whole time. Volunteers typically bring their own cleaning supplies.

The ultimate goal was inspired by our own †Fr. Arcuri. When asked how the sisters keep the convent so fresh and clean he said, “The official term is ‘convent clean.’” We wondered what that meant and he replied, “They clean the corners.”

To “Rise Up Now!” and help keep our church “convent clean”, please contact coordinators Steve and Kelly Nasdeo at (614) 547-2303 or send an email to [email protected]

Fall Cleaning Dates

We’ll accept any help – stay the entire time or however long you’re able.  Please plan to bring your own cleaning supplies (rags, paper towels, murphy’s oil soap, bucket, windex) and meet in the church.
