Elizabeth Ministry – The Elizabeth Ministry officially began in our parish on Mother’s Day 2004. Women known as Elizabeth Ministers welcome newborns in the parish with a visit, gift and prayer. Women who have known the heartache of infertility or miscarriage will offer support through prayer, resources and gatherings. All ladies of the parish are invited to participate.

Grief Support Group - Men and women who have lost spouses or other loved ones support each other in friendship and prayer.  Gatherings are typically held on a Wednesday at noon once a month in the parish center small meeting room.  We begin with a meal then may have a guest speaker or open discussion.  Cards from the group are regularly sent to parishioners who have recently lost a loved one.  The group shares resources and articles with the parish through the parish newsletter and bulletin.

Marriage Preparation Lead Couples - Couples who have been married in the Catholic Church for at least five years may volunteer to be a lead couple for our Marriage Preparation program.  Following training, they host sessions in their home for several engaged couples to discuss a variety of topics relating to sacramental marriage.

Silent Strength Prayer Group - Responding to the request of parents whose adult children have left the faith or made immoral decisions, the Family Life Committee has begun the Silent Strength Prayer Group.

We gather by the tabernacle at 10:30am for an hour of prayer for these loved ones.
