Christmas Project
It is in the celebration of the Christmas season when the sharing of our gifts, talents and time for those in need demonstrates where Christ truly lives.  This ministry provides that opportunity by collecting clothing, food and toys for the needy of our parish community and local area.  Volunteers shop, wrap and assemble packages, to be distributed before Christmas.

Emergency Care
These volunteers are committed to maintaining American Heart Association CPR/AED certification in order to respond to a medical emergency occurring during a liturgy or other church function.

Emergency Food PantryLoaves & Fishes Ministry
“Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink?”  And the King will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me!” Parishioners are invited to collect and distribute donated food to the hungry of our parish and neighborhood.

Funeral Luncheon
This hospitable group of parishioners shows their care for families undergoing the loss of a loved one by providing a buffet following the funeral service.  Many hands behind the scene bake, cook and prepare the environment with care whenever called.

Pastoral and Eucharistic Minister Visits
Letting the members of our parish family who are homebound or in nursing homes and hospitals know by these weekly or biweekly visits that they have a loving, caring God that will not forget them is a blessed gift to share.  Bringing Eucharist to shut-ins reminds them they are still a part of a faith-filled and praying community that can not do without them.  Interested adults will be instructed and supported in carrying out this ministry.
