Ministries at our parish

As each one of you has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace.        1 Peter, Chapter 4:10

Our Parish and school mission  revolves around the many different ministries we offer those who visit our campus.  These ministries proclaim our Christian Catholic witness.  Your presence is needed in all of these areas of our parish and school to make it run smoothly and carry out that mission.  Some of those areas are listed here but there are many more and the need changes, so check back often or call the parish center or the director for that particular department for more information.
