We gather. We pray. We write.
New members are welcome anytime to our friendly group. We explore and practice different types of writing and read our work to one another each week. Some days we do “free writing” for ten minutes on a chosen topic. Other weeks we read our prepared pieces (up to 500 words) on a designated subject. Our topics are not overtly “religious,” but give us an opportunity to express the concerns of our souls. Many consider the experience to be healing. We encourage humor and playfulness; we laugh a lot. We inform each other about writing resources, and we share equally the responsibility for the successful working of the group.
This is as much a faith sharing group as it is a writing group. We pray together. We take care of one another. Our comments on one another’s writing are constructive and honor the deep feelings that are expressed.

A Caregiver's Prayer
Lord Jesus, who from the cross gave the care of your Mother to St. John, help us to realize that you have blessed us too with the care of someone in our family. Help us to be your gentle hands and loving compassion on earth.
Father in heaven, you know my heart, calm my anxieties. Pour out your grace and mercy in my life like a healing balm. Lighten my burden, answer my prayer, and give me the strength to do what so often seems impossible.
Spirit of life, remind me to breath - give me a quiet place to rest when I need it and breathe in me your loving peace. Remain my constant companion through this journey. And, when it is time for me to let go, help me remember that my dear one is leaving my loving embrace for yours.

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.
Sacristans ensure that all the materials needed to celebrate liturgy are ready and in place for each celebration.

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.

The Catechism teaches that "Christ’s grace in the Sacrament of Marriage protects the essential purposes of marriage: the good of the couple and the generation and education of children. These purposes are protected and fostered by the permanence of the marriage bond and the mutual fidelity of spouses” (United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, 283).

Do you wonder what it truly means to be a Catholic Christian in today’s complex world? How do we respond to the hatred and violence filling our news feeds? Consider joining a JustFaith group to explore this question through reflection, study, prayer, and community.
JustFaith is an intensive, small group process for faithful Christians looking to deepen their commitment to care for vulnerable people and our planet.
Through prayer, study, dialogue and immersions, people form community as they explore critical realities and their implications to their lives and their faith.
