Ministries

Fellowship Committee

The Fellowship Committee enhances our parish sense of community spirit and fellowship by providing set up, service, and clean up of refreshments and meals at receptions and events hosted at the parish.  This includes after First Friday services, Lenten Stations, Sunday Speakers Series, and other special seasonal receptions.  Please contact Chrissy Kelleher through the Parish Office if you are interested in participating in this committee.

Finance Committee

Primary function of this committee is to assist pastor with the review and monitoring of the church and school finances, including preparation of the budgets and review of major expenditures.

First Reconciliation & First Eucharist

The Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are usually received in the second grade of Religious Education.  Catechists teaching this grade assist the Director of Religious Education in preparing the children and their families for these sacraments.  Parents attend an information meeting for each sacrament and participate in Sacrament Retreat Days.  At these retreats, the children and their families learn more about Reconciliation and Communion through games, crafts, prayer and song.  Contact Steve Cox for more information.

Health Care Ministry

The primary function of this ministry is to minister to parishioners who are ill, living at home or in a hospital/retirement facility or in a nursing home and would like to receive Holy Communion.

Hospitality Ministers greet parishioners and welcome visitors as they gather for worship. They distribute bulletins, select people to take up the collection and invite persons to carry the gifts to the altar. After Mass, they see that the church is neat and tidy for the next Liturgy.
