Catechetical Sunday is a day set aside to recognize the vocation and ministry of teaching and sharing the faith with others. A wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each baptized person plays in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel.
On this day catechists throughout the diocese, and country, are commissioned and dedicate themselves to their vocation of teaching the faith to the children, teens and adults of our parish community.
The catechists of our parish, wonderful men and
women who answered YES to the call to be present and walk the faith journey with the adults, youth and children of the parish, are called forth to receive a blessing and be formally commissioned to continue the beautiful labor of sharing and growing in the faith.
To all catechists in our lives, parents and grandparents, priests and deacons, religious sisters, church family, all who have been encounters of Jesus in our lives, we thank you!

There are occasional solo opportunities and one of the most important missions of CMSC is to form young people in music ministry - the idea that rather than a mere performance what the choir does at the liturgy is to lead the singing of the assembly, and to enable their own and everyone's sung prayer. Additionally, when the choir sings by itself at the liturgy, the purpose is to help everyone there who hears the music, including the singers themselves, to encounter Jesus. We are trying to teach all participants in all the choirs that it is a ministry of service to God's people and to the liturgy, and that worship "in spirit and in truth" is what we are aiming for.
To join CMSC, schedule a Vocal Checkup with our Children's Choir Director, Kathleen MacAller.
New and/or returning CMSC members can make an appointment for vocal checkups using Sign Up Genius.
Rehearsals Thursday evenings
Auditions are held for voice placement and/or solo opportunities. For an audition, please contact:

On Saturday, June 23 at the 5:00pm mass, Jennifer Jamison and Richard Hergenreder were received into the Catholic Church.
Already one with us as baptized Christians, they made a profession of faith in the Catholic Church, were confirmed and received Eucharist for the first time.
It is with great joy that we welcome them and thank God for their presence which renews and strengthens our community.
New members are welcomed into the Catholic faith through the RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. If you would like to know more about RCIA for adults or children, please contact Catherine Shadduck (805) 482·6417 ext. 331 or
