CAST (Catholic Adults Seeking Truth)

CAST is a scripture-based Bible study. We meet twice a month from September through March from 6:30 to 8:00pm at the church. Most programs are 7-12 sessions long. You will complete assigned readings and questions at home and then meet at the church for small group discussions, and video explanations. Pre-Registration is required to receive the study material.

Communion to the Homebound

When someone is seriously ill, either at home or in the hospital, Communion is brought to them so they can share in this sacrament.  If you would like to help in this important ministry, please volunteer!  Christ has no hands but yours.

Divine Mercy Cenacle

The Divine Mercy group studies The Diary of St. Faustina and God’s mercy and love for us through the conversations St. Faustina had with Jesus. We meet the first and third Tuesday of the month from 8:45-9:45 am in Building A.

Prayer and Healing Ministry

The parish offers an opportunity for healing prayer on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in the Church.  We devote our prayers to ask God for His healing touch.  All are welcome to join us every Monday evening.

Ministry of Consolation and Funerals

The Ministry of Consolation offers to bring the healing comfort of God into the lives of a family mourning a loss through death.  Ministers express sympathy and compassion when a member of our parish community has experienced the loss of a loved one.  Additional support is provided by serving as liturgical ministers during the funeral Mass, by preparing food for or by serving at the funeral reception, and by sending a card or making a phone call to remember the grieving family.
Contact the parish office at (904) 284-3811.

Parish Council

The Parish Council serves to advise and assist the Pastor in the establishment of policies and activities that promote the spiritual growth and development of the members of the Parish.   Council membership consists of elected parishioners who serve for two years. There are also representatives of various organizations in the Parish that are part of the Council.  The Council welcomes ideas and suggestions and meetings are open to all.  The meetings are on the first Monday of every other month and run September through June.
Contact the parish office at (904) 284-3811.

Prayer Blankets

Members of this ministry pray for the intentions of the sick as they make small blankets and then sew on a Medal of the Immaculate Conception (Miraculous Medal) which is covered with a red fabric heart onto the corner of the blanket. After being prayed over by parishioners during parish gatherings and blessed at Mass, the blankets are given to the sick to comfort them as they use them with knowledge that the prayers of the Parish cover them and they are not alone in their time of physical sufferings and mental anxieties.
If you are interested in making blankets, we would love to hear from you. Please contact Kathy Yoakley at
