CHRISTIAN SERVICE TEAM
The mission of the Christian Service team is to meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of those broken and hurting in any way. This team requires stewards who have kind, compassionate hearts and wish to perform purposeful deeds in the Spirt of our Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary. The team encompasses several ministries, including the food pantry, Christmas giving tree; LOVE, Inc.; casserole crew, & homebound ministry (see “Ministries” for more information).
FINANCE & ADMINISTRATION TEAM
The primary work of the Finance and Administration team includes budget preparation, support of parish administration activities, and providing recommendations to the Pastor and Parish Council regarding financial and administrative matters. The team also promotes interaction and communication among other parish teams, is focused on the common goals of the parish, and helps to maximize stewardship of parish resources. We need stewards who understand finance strategies and are detail-oriented. We are always in need of people of vision who can keep our parish on the path of fiscal responsibility.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal Catholic family service organization, dedicated to the ideals of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. Our programs allow families to work together to aid their church, their community, and one another. We have fun doing good deeds and raising money to give away to needy causes.
