Growing in our Relationship with God

  • Make prayer a part of our lives through individual and communal prayer, public and private prayer.
  • Through prayer we are invited to draw closer to Jesus and to imitate Him in our daily lives.
  • While Eucharist is central in our spiritual life, other prayer opportunities are made available.


Art & Environment

Help create the visual art that is used in the church, following the guidelines prescribed by the Church. Members are needed to assist in all the various aspects such as design skill for creating seasonal environments, sewing abilities (mainly hemming), installing and removing the liturgical environment for each Church season, especially during Christmas and Easter, and assist with the upkeep of the altar flowers/plants at special times of the year (watering the poinsettias and lilies, taking off dead flowers, removing pollen, etc.). Guidelines and training will be provided.
