We have various parish ministries that can utilize your spiritual gifts ranging from serving at the altar, lecturing, choir and parish organizations. As a Church and Family, our purpose is to help bring all to Christ and His salvation. To achieve this goal, we need 100% participation at worship and parish functions. There are so many unchurched people looking for answers in life, help them find their answers by inviting them to worship.
Anyone interested in participating in a parish ministry such as Music, Greeters, Ushers, Altar Care, Lectors, Mission & Evangelism,
Acolyte or Sacristan are encouraged to speak to Fr. Bruce. You will be fulfilling Christ’s commission to his disciples.

Diocesan Day of Prayer
Prayer Blankets & Prayer Shawls
Our Women Society and our Youth are in the process of making Prayer Blankets/Shawls for our parish members during this Lenten Season. They will be assembling the blankets after the 9 AM Mass, Sunday Feb. 22nd. This project is open to anyone interested in helping in the production of the blankets/shawls. You don’t have to belong to the societies. If you know of someone who would like a blanket/shawl, please place their names on the special request form which is on the bulletin board in the Narthex. These special gifts will be made for our elderly, shut-in, and those with medical health problems. This faith driven program is a way of assurance to the recipients that they are loved and part of our parish family. Blankets preparations and assemblance
