Parish Life

A parish is more than a building,
it is a community of believers
who come together to grow
in spiritual maturity through
shared worship, service, prayer, & social time.

It is through God that we grow in faith, and to nurture us, He sends people to help us and who need our help.  Our community is made up of  people who are a strength and a blessing to each other.

When we help others, we find that we are always both giver and reciever of blessings.  When we recognize our blessings and pour out our time & gifts back to God, God is made visible to others through our life.  Some of the ways that our parish has made “Thy Kingdom come!”

  • Visiting the sick, homebound, and the grieving, as well as new parishioners
  • Organizing and sharing in celebration at our Parish Picnic, Breakfast with Santa, Family Skating Party, St. Patrick’s Day Pizza Party, Palm Path, and Monthly Community Sundays
  • Sharing prayer and faith at Bible Study, Prayer Group, in small groups through the Arise Together in Christ program, in the RCIA process to be welcomed into the Catholic Church, and special liturgies and prayer services through the liturgical year

  • Coordinating aid and relief for the Haiti Project
  • Sharing expertise in photography, web design, software & network upgrades, legal and financial consultation, building and grounds planning, as members of the Parish Pastoral Council, and Communication Committee
  • Decorating the Church inside and out to draw us into the liturgical seasons through all our senses
  • Serving at Mass as Lectors, Choir, Cantors, Musicians, Eucharistic Ministers, and Altar Servers
  • Enriching the faith of our growing Catholics as catechists and aides at Religious Education classes for children and Children’s Liturgy
  • Coordinating, coaching, assisting and playing in our 1st and 2nd grade soccer program and our CYO Basketball program (5th – 12th grade) providing positive experiences of living their faith beyond the church and offering a witness to the community.

Jesus shared meals not only with His friends but with many who needed his presence

Circle of Comfort cooks meals for those in need of comfort. Stop by the rectory to pick up a lasagna or an apple crisp for someone that you know that needs a reminder that they are cared for.
