Outreach

"There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord" 1Cor 12:4-5 NAB

Where is God calling you to use your gifts? Our parish offers many opportunities to serve in ways that work with your schedule. Please feel free to reach out to ministry leaders or use the link to the volunteer form to learn more.

Baptism/New Parents Committee

The Baptism Ministry includes a phone call or home visit following a child's baptism.  The group prepares gift bags, knitting small items for baby, assembles rosaries for children, and prepares baked goods and casserole for the family.  This is a great opportunity to share in a very joyous time in the lives of new parents.
