Sometimes following Jesus means leading the way.
Our Food Pantry Team
"Feed my sheep."
Our Food Pantry is similar to a small, free, grocery store available to those with limited resources. Participants are able to select food and household items they need rather than being forced to take unwanted products they might not use.
Our Pantry is affiliated with the State's program and thus we must abide by state guidelines. Our participants are referred to us by several local agencies. These agencies verify the participant's need and their needs may be based on medical disability or financial/economic hardship. That way we know that the support we offer is truly helping those in need. Throughout the year, we serve dozens and dozens of individuals, couples and families.
Our hours of operation are:
Wednesday at 5:30 to 7:00 pm
and Thursday 1:30 to 3:00 pm.
Our Liturgy Team
The Work of the People
The word “liturgy” means "of the people." Therefore, the participation of members in our regular worship service is very important. Our various Lay Assistants serve as Lectors (reading the Scriptures); Crucifers (carrying the Cross); Ushers (which pass out our worship Missalettes and collect the offering); Oblationers (those presenting the Gifts of God for the People of God); Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers (assisting the Deacon in the preparation of the altar and at times, serving the chalice); and Altar Guild members (preparing the Sanctuary for the service).
We also rely heavily on our Cantor and Parish Musician to beautify our worship with the power of music, and our Audio-Visual and Digital Tech Ministers to coordinate sound, recording, live-streaming and more!
If you are interested in serving with the Liturgy Team, please contact our Interim Pastor Deacon Joshua.
The Parish Choir
It has been said that they who sing pray twice. So our church musicians spend a lot of time in prayer! Our Cantor, Parish Musician, Music Director and Choir work in concert to provide uplifting music in worship on a year-round basis. These are perhaps the most dedicated members of the parish and dedicate a great deal of their time and talent. From September through the end of May our choir members gather for rehearsal on Wednesday evenings. During the summer, June through August, they hold a rehearsal one Sunday afternoon per month.
Whether you sing, play an instrument or have another musical talent, the Parish’s music ministry has just the place for you. Reach out to our Cantor or Parish Musician if you would like to share your musical gifts with the parish.
Please note: The choir is on indefinite hiatus due to the COVID19 pandemic.
