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. A priest can be reached 24 hours a day at 284-3811.
The Men’s Group is open to all men of the parish and meets monthly. The evening meeting begins with a prayer and scripture discussion and is followed by a time when the men can meet each other in a social setting. The men meet on the 4th Thursday of the month.

RCIA Catechetical Ministers
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the Church’s process of ministering to our non-Catholic brothers and sisters (aged seven years or older) who seek membership in the Catholic Church. It is a spiritual journey that encompasses periods of instruction, prayer, and participation in liturgical rites throughout the course of instruction. While each individual’s length of study varies, preparation for the lifetime commitment is an ongoing, ‘year round’ process which may be joined at any time during the year.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
Adult parishioners are invited to serve as either Discussion Group Facilitators or RCIA Sacramental Sponsors. Facilitators share their personal experience of the Catholic faith tradition with those who are seeking membership in the Catholic Church during scheduled study sessions. Sponsors shepherd one individual through the RCIA process by accompanying them during RCIA sessions, acting as sounding boards for concerns and questions, assisting the soon-to-be Catholic integrate into the parish community, and being present for the Liturgical Rites associated with RCIA. Catechetical Ministers seeking more active participation are eligible to train to become diocesan certified RCIA Catechists.
Religious Education Catechist
Adults are invited to serve as religious education catechists and catechist’s assistances for our children in grades K-12. All catechists will be provided required certification training through the diocese. Background checks and the Protecting God’s children class are required for volunteering with the children.
