It is the goal of the Bereavement Committee to provide food for the family during the visitation. Volunteers are needed to make phone calls, prepare food, be present during the visitation (if at Holy Rosary), and to simply assist the family.

This ministry is for expectant or adoptive parents in the parish. The Guild contacts the mom-to-be with a letter and prayer card. After the birth, they visit with a prepared meal for the family and a gift bag.

A subsidiary of the Ladies Guild, these parish women have monthly evening meetings usually the third Thursday of every month at 7 pm in the church conference room. The Angels undertake a variety of projects such as sponsoring and organizing the annual Christmas Bazaar, participating in service projects, attending spiritual retreats, donating time to help with church events, and enjoying social events such as BUNCO, painting parties, ice cream socials and book discussions. This is a wonderful group of women of all ages who support each other and like to gather together for fellowship and fun!

The Church is its people, the group, the community. With that in mind, the parish will host monthly family friendly activities designed for people of all ages to mingle, meet and build a stronger community. There will be events from greenway hikes, to snowman builds (assuming there’s snow of course), to box city building.

The Parish Council is made up of lay church members who represent various interests of the parish, such as social action, education and parish life. The Council meets on the second Monday of every month. New members are always welcome.

Young Families Faith and Play Groups
As a Catholic parent, it is our duty to raise our children in morally supportive environments and in the Catholic faith and traditions. The newly formed Young Families groups are groups for mothers and fathers whose youngest child is aged 7 and/or younger has been established to provide the support of other Catholic parent(s). There is a day time faith share/play date combo, an evening rosary and monthly family activities in the works.
