Ministries For You

Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing
Our parish stewardship is focused on inspiring a Christ-centered way of life for all parishioners. Our mission is to promote parishioner involvement in parish life by harnessing each individual’s desire to share their Time, Talent, and Treasure for the common good of the community of faithful.

The Stewardship Council meets quarterly throughout the year, and is made up of active members who either lead or are engaged with other church ministries.

The Rites or “mileposts” along the journey help to continually discover God’s path and expectations for each person.

Catechism is an education in the faith of children, young people and adults which includes especially the teaching of Christian doctrine imparted, generally speaking, in an organic and systematic way, with a view to initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life.
Please register your children to become fully active in their faith and give them the gift of understanding the teachings of the Faith and of the Sacraments, the greatest gift you, as parents, can give your children.

The communities present each an opportunity to discover or rediscover his or her Christian identity.  Starting with a series of catecheses for adults and youth over age 13, they bring forth a discovery of the fruits of baptism and a way to continue on an active journey of faith.  In the words of St John Paul II, the Neo-Catechumenal Way is “an itinerary of Catholic formation valid for our society and for our times.”  The series of catecheses is given approximately once each year, announced at Masses and in the parish bulletin.  Signs are placed around the church when catecheses are about to commence.  All are welcome to listen to the catecheses regardless of personal life situations:  Baptized or non-baptized, practicing or non-practicing, Catholic or non-Catholic --- all are encouraged to come and listen.

The Missionaries of Charity, the religious Order founded by Saint Teresa of Calcutta, provide the casserole containers and the recipes. The rectory serves as the site to pick up the casserole container and recipe and to deliver the food. It is then transported to the Missionaries of Charity at their site near Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The Coffee and Cake Ministry encourages our fellow parishioners to gather after Mass and become better acquainted with one and other on a social basis, creating an environment where members of the parish can enjoy fellowship.  Also, during the Religious Education term, the coffee and cake ministry creates a space for parents to relax and socialize while their children are attending Religious Education classes.  In addition, our goal is to make this after Mass activity children-friendly as a means of positively demonstrating to them the benefits of a church community.  

When: after 10 AM Mass on a weekly basis (except major Sunday holidays like Easter, Thanksgiving & some summer holidays). 

How: The coffee ministry is currently comprised of primarily six families who rotate the serving responsibility on a weekly basis. Each family prepares the coffee in the rectory kitchen and provides a bakery item to adult parishioners and/or cookies for the children.  We have an offering plate that helps finance the material needed for the service. (Plates, sugar, coffee, cups, forks, knives, etc.). We do not solicit or obligate to give.

The purpose of this ministry is to make known the teaching of the Divine Will according to the writings of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta. It is the calling of the Trinity to humanity, to return to the origin, the order and the finality for which we have been created, in His Image and Likeness. It is the fulfillment of the prayer that Jesus taught us: “Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”.
