This is a beautiful, wonderful, friendly bunch of folks! Every year with about 600 children and teens enrolled in after school learning, we really need about 100 loving, happy adults to help teach and lead.
This small army of volunteers are the face of Jesus and his church to our young people. Our Faith Formation staff do all the work! We plan and write all the lessons, prepare all the games, crafts and other materials. We create teams of two to lead the sessions then train, mentor and guide you throughout the year. You are never alone. You
just have a great time rolling it out with your partner.
We already have 80 people returning, just need about 20 more!! Is this for you?

Take Communion to the sick, hospitalized and homebound, thereby taking Christ through faith and charity, on behalf of the whole community.
Celebrating the Eucharist is central to our faith. However, due to illness or injury, many Catholics in our parish and community cannot join in the celebration.
Our desire is to stay connected with them so we have a team of volunteers, Eucharistic Ministers to the Sick, who bring Communion to convalescent, nursing, and individual homes as well as local hospitals.
If you or a loved one are sick, hospitalized and/or homebound and would like Communion brought to you, please contact the parish office or Deacon Luc Papillon.
Coordinated by Wendy Grasso, this ministry is open to additional volunteers.
Eucharistic Ministers: Serve the Body and Blood of Jesus to the community at liturgy.
Hospitality Ministers welcome us as we arrive to worship, helping us find our way around the worship space and into comfortable seats, facilitating our processions (especially at Communion), and handing out worship aids and bulletins. They help all of us be responsible stewards by taking up the collection at the liturgy. This ministry is open to new members.
Bob Shadduck is the coordinator of this vital ministry involving over 100 of our young people. Training takes place in late winter/early spring. Parents are required to attend the first training session with their child(ren). Installation of first year altar servers takes place in October.
