Volunteers needed to assist at 175th anniversary Mass at Lucas Oil Stadium

The Archdiocese of Indianapolis still needs volunteers to help at the May 3 Mass celebrating the archdiocese’s 175th anniversary.

About 350 people are needed to carry out a variety of ministries during the Mass to be celebrated at 3 p.m. at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, said Stephen James, director of the archdiocesan Office of Purchasing, who is coordinating the recruitment of volunteers.

Volunteers are needed to help with most aspects of the Mass, including assisting the bishops with confirmation. Ushers, sign bearers and Communion guides are also needed.

Volunteers will need to be able to walk up and down stairs, James noted. Jobs will be assigned to individuals when they arrive at Lucas Oil Stadium.

(Volunteers are encouraged to register online at Look for the volunteers’ link. You may also sign up to help by sending an e-mail to Call Steve James at 317-236-1451 or 800-382-9836, ext. 1451, if you have questions.)
