“Wherever two or three come together in my name, there I am with them.” Matthew 18:20.

All of our Parish volunteers are required to attend VIRTUS Training and to update that training each month via training bulletins on the Internet. This is extremely important, so that we, as a Church, can take every possible step to protect the people we are trying to help.


John McNamara

The Rite of Christian Initiation (R.C.I.A.) is the process through which interested adults are gradually introduced to the Roman Catholic faith and way of life. They are educated in the theological lessons necessary to allow them to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.

Volunteers with this ministry support those going through R.C.I.A. as small group discussion leaders, sponsors, and resources.

R.C.I.A. for Children

John McNamara

The children’s R.C.I.A. program brings the Good News of Jesus to children age 7 and above and prepares them for the Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil. This is open to children from different faiths who wish to become Catholic or for those who have been delayed in receiving the first sacraments.

Members of this ministry assist and support the children, with concentrated effort in welcoming them into our family of faith.

Pre-Cana (Marriage)

Joan and Dave Krawec

Pre-Cana is a Catholic course on marriage. Engaged couples are required to participate in the course before they can be married in the Catholic Church. These six sessions help couples to develop a stronger faith, learn and interact with married couples, and discover new things about themselves and their partner in preparation for married life.

Members of this ministry help engaged couples by sharing their faith, practical information, and life experiences that will help guide them to a successful marriage in today’s world. Training is provided.

Wedding Coordinators

Chris and Jim Harrison

Wedding Coordinators assist the engaged couple with wedding preparations, rehearsals, and activities on the day of the wedding. For more information, please call the Parish office.
Altar Society

Deacon Joe Bartolotto

The Altar Society ministry insures that all cloths and linens used at Mass, liturgical ceremonies and baptisms are worthy of God’s altar. Please contact Deacon Joe if you are interested in assisting with this ministry.
