The heart of a parish is our sacred worship of God centered on the Most Holy Eucharist; but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the Sacraments.
Faith formation is a vital element of the community as we grow in knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he left us. A deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and our families, friends, neighbors, parish, and community. Such faith formation is not just for children, but for all of us as we grow as Catholics. Our parish has many opportunities for faith formation that we encourage you to explore.
Another way to participate in our parish life is volunteering to serve in our various parish ministries, including, but not limited to: the choir, lectors, altar servers, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, social justice ministries, visiting the home-bound, serving the poor – the Society of Vincent de Paul , youth ministry, and men’s & women’s groups. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other community. Please prayerfully consider the many opportunities for getting involved in ministry. And if you have an idea for a new parish ministry, please contact us.
With so many ways to be part of parish life, you’ll want to stay informed by reading the weekly bulletin, just in case you’ve misplaced the one you received at Mass. You’ll also want to check the parish calendar for a list of events and mass schedules.
Our parish has a rich history in our town, being founded by people who trusted in the Lord and gathered together under the leadership of our bishop. Who we are today is based on who we were yesterday. Find out more about our spiritual forefathers as you read the history of our parish.
