We are an active parish which relies on the volunteers from within to help. Each Ministry is an invitation and an opportunity to serve and to be involved in the Parish community.
Ministries of Service
“Ministry is the activity of the Church – it is carried out by all members of the Church at every level and under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, enabling to carry on the mission of Jesus Christ to the world.” St. Paul wrote to the people of Corinth in the early Church. Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit and then there are varieties of services, but the same Lord, and there are varieties of activities; but the same God activates all of them in everyone.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is celebrated with preschoolers (3-5 years) and children (K-6) at 9:30am Sunday Mass. Children reflect on the Sunday Gospel through age appropriate activities. Contact email@example.com
Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist assist the priest at Mass and Liturgical celebrations. They are trained and appointed by the parish. They assist in the sanctuary as acolytes or senior servers, with the distribution of the Eucharist at mass, as Presiders at the Liturgy of the Word and Holy Communion, and by taking Communion to the sick in their homes or in nursing homes.
