Family Ministry

Family Ministry

Committee Chairs:

Emily Lowe and Holly Curp

Meeting Times:

First Monday at 6pm (Currently via Zoom)

The Family Ministry’s mission is to strengthen our faith community through participation in the sacraments, prayer, special events and service. Our activities include our family Mass, educational projects, social events, and community service opportunities for our families with children of all ages.

We seek to strengthen the connections between our home, our faith, and our community through our Mom, Pops, and Tots group; Parish Dinners; the Coffee and Cookie Hour following the 11 am Family Mass; and various faith- and family-based workshops. We perform our service through food drives, school supply drives, and various seasonal activities.

When we are unable to meet in person, we offer support through online programming, newsletters, and family-centered devotionals.

Through this ministry, we strive to live as Pope Francis encourages, “God…knocks on the doors of families…that bring up their children and educate them and help them to keep going forward and that creates a society of goodness, of truth, and of beauty.”

Our Ministry, organized through a committee of parents that represents the diversity of our parish, meets once a month at church.
