Our parish Lazarus Ministry is essential and needed. More importantly, it’s a ministry of loving people into God’s hands after death, escorting them with our prayers and supporting their family and friends.
Many non-Catholics and non-practicing Catholics who don’t know the liturgy, nor the responses, attend our funerals. As a member of the Lazarus Ministry, you simply attend the funerals, as your schedule allows, to pray and sing the responses.
Your presence and participating alone support the grieving family and friends as they celebrate the life of the deceased, whether you know them personally or not. No special skills are required. No time commitment beyond the one-hour funeral liturgy. Just your loving presence and participation.
When a funeral is scheduled, you will receive an email with details from Jane Riggio.

St. Vincent De Paul is our parish’s outreach ministry to the poor, hungry, homeless, struggling and needy in our midst. Our parish conference is one of many in Ventura County, joining with nearly 400 volunteers who all combined have helped 14,000 people this past year.
Every day our on-call ministers talk and meet with individuals and families who need financial assistance and resources to have a meal or safe shelter, to pay a utility bill, rent, medical bill, or for gas. This wonderful work would not have been possible without God’s help, your generous contributions and the volunteer efforts of our Vincentians.
If you would like to learn more about making a difference in someone’s life, consider giving your time, talent or treasure to SVdP please contact Terri Korell email@example.com

One Can Makes a Difference
From a current member of the ministry:
"Being a volunteer is a blessing. It makes me aware of the blessings in my own life. Viewing the world through the eyes of the less fortunate keeps me grounded and more aware of the people around me. Our parish conference very special. The love and support we receive from our fellow Vincentians is wonderful and the service itself keeps faith in front of everything you do. Come and join us and count your blessings."
We accompany active duty members, reserve military members and your families for as long as you’re here. Our ministers will welcome you, help you connect with the parish and ministries, discern any particular needs, support your family while you’re here or deployed, and be of assistance in any way possible.
If you’re an active or reserve member of any branch of the military, we’d love to meet you and your family.

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.
