Outreach Ministries

  • Giving Tree

    The Giving Tree helps parishioners and other members of the community by providing Christmas presents to those in need. It is a wonderful opportunity to help people in our local area. Many volunteers are needed to help prepare and sort items.

    The prayer blanket ministry works, prays, and shares social time together while making prayer blankets for the sick or those needing spiritual uplifting as well as baptismal blankets for the babies baptized in the parish. They meet the third Tuesday of the month, September through May from 1:00-3:00 pm.

Volunteers are also needed to attend the meetings to help further brain storm ways to spread the message of life.

  • St. Vincent De Paul Society

    The mission of the St. Vincent de Paul Society is to provide support for the homeless and those in prison as well as for our own parishioners who find themselves without income or resources. Volunteers in this ministry access needs and coordinate the distribution of food, counsel, funds, and housing for those in need. 

  • Vocations Committee

    The Vocations Committee strives to support and encourage young people as they discern their Vocation to Marriage, Holy Orders, or the Consecrated Life. Volunteers meet periodically throughout the year to brainstorm and plan ideas to continue helping our parishioners understand the role of Vocations in their lives and our parish community, as well as supporting our Sons and Daughters of Seton (those discerning Priesthood and the Consecrated Life in our parish community).

  • Welcome Committee

    The Welcome Committee is a hospitality ministry. These volunteers plan and implement various activities to welcome new members to the parish. Mentors are also needed to reach out to new families to help them get acclimated and familiar with all that our parish offers. The Welcome Committee typically meets periodically throughout the year and mentors meet on an as needed basis.
