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.

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. Help serve refreshments at parish events with a welcoming smile on a great team.
This ministry is open to new members.

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mk 12:31
St. Vincent De Paul is our parish’s outreach ministry to the poor, hungry, homeless, struggling and needy in our midst. 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.
Those in need should call (805) 504·4753. A member is on call Monday to Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm.

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."
One Can Makes a Difference
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?
