Service Ministries

Finance Committee

Chair - Rosemary Stogniew

The function of this committee is to advice the pastor on financial matters of the parish. By overseeing the finances of the parish, the finance committee strives to ensure that the resources of the parish are used for the good of the parish. The finance committee keeps our parish family informed by publishing an annual financial statement. We rely heavily on the generosity and support of our parishioners. We encourage participation in the stewardship program and the Bishop’s annual pastoral appeal to keep this parish an active, vital member of the diocese.

Keepers of the Cross

Ministry Leader - Alejandra Padilla

The Keepers of the Cross volunteer their time in a variety of on-going housekeeping duties relating to the sanctuary. These persons take pride in fulfilling this important, though largely unnoticed service. Their faithful, silent and efficient attention to detail provide an impeccable environment surrounding the sanctuary and the church.

Parish Pastoral Council

Chair - John Hehn

The parish pastoral council is charged with supporting the parish by preparing and assessing a pastoral plan. The parish pastoral council meets monthly.

Society of St. Vincent de Paul

The Mission of the Society is to help those less fortunate and suffering in a spirit of justice and charity by the personal, and one-on-one involvement of its members with those in need. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic organization of lay persons founded in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam and his companions. The Society is open to all who wish to live the Faith by loving and serving their neighbors. No work of charity is foreign to the Society. Vincentian help can include any person-to-person assistance that promotes human dignity and integrity. The Society is concerned not only with relieving need, but also with redressing the situations that cause it. We serve people in need, regardless of creed, opinion, color, caste or origin. The entire group gathers twice a month (the second and fourth Tuesdays at 6:00 pm) for spiritual direction and to discuss opportunities to serve the poor. We are always in need of more volunteers to help in this important out-reach ministry.
