Respect Life Ministry
"As a gift from God, every human life is sacred from conception to natural death." For information on how you can join or help with this ministry, contact:
Outreach Thrift Store and Food Pantry
Volunteers provide assistance to the Institute for Human Services (IHS/Salvation Army) by cooking a chili dinner on the first Thursday of every month thus providing a hot meal to those in need.
We bring the Word of Christ, the Holy Eucharist, and the Sunday bulletin to parishioners who are unable to attend Mass on Sunday. This helps them maintain an ongoing connection to the life of our parish community.
Gary & Colette Higgins
We bring the Word of Christ, the Holy Eucharist, and the Sunday bulletin to those who are ill at Castle hospital who have identified themselves as Catholic and who would like to be visited by a Eucharistic Minister.
Cards of Faith Ministry
We are a group of parishioners who design and write cards for those who are homebound, in the hospital, or just needing some spiritual encouragement, thus linking them to the life of our parish community. “Sharing God’s love through Cards of Faith.”
We encourage fellowship and a welcoming spirit within our church community. We serve refreshments after Sunday Masses on the fourth Sunday of each month which we warmly refer to as our Ohana Sunday.
Upon notification of the death of a loved one, we reach out to comfort the family and help coordinate the funeral Mass. We assist the Parish priests or deacons as they plan for funerals and burials.
We share Christ’s love with imprisoned men and women. We help in many ways to include ministering in prayer and faith sharing groups, bible studies, academic studies, music, and bringing the Holy Eucharist to inmates.
