Parish Life

Review our various ministries we have available to every parishioner regardless of age or station in life, there is something for everyone.

The committee provides either a reception or a lunch following the funeral of a parishioner or a parishioner’s family member.

This committee maintains and supports Brady Hall, which is in the basement of the church. The committee holds fundraisers, assists with parish-wide events and maintains required supplies for events and activities held in the Hall (i.e., paper products, utensils, coffee, tea, etc.)

The Fellowship Committee helps to organize and host special parish events such as our very popular annual St. Ignatius Day Parish Picnic. As well, the committee coordinates receptions after special Masses, such as for Easter, Christmas, Confirmation, and First Communion.

Named for St. Peter Claver, this Catholic lay organization renders service to God and Church by promoting spiritual, social and charitable association among parishioners through activities such as praying the rosary, collecting new clothing for the homeless, preparing a parish breakfast, distributing school supplies and organizing a family-oriented Halloween event. Youth provide service to the parish and engage in spiritual activities through the Junior Knights and Junior Daughters of Peter Claver.

The Parish Council advises the Pastor on a wide variety of matters relating to the Parish. Members reflect and represent the parish as a whole, and are chosen for their expertise, their enthusiasm, and their commitment to our common mission.

This group of sewers provides support on an as available and as needed basis under the guidance of a project leader. Projects may include designing and creating banners to decorate the church for all liturgical seasons and providing for special needs within and outside our local community.

The Welcoming Team works hard to make sure that parishioners and visitors alike feel personally welcomed and valued. As well, the team develops opportunities for new parishioners to connect with our thriving and growing congregation!

The Women’s Club’s mission is to build community within the parish through service and social activities including an annual women’s retreat and hosting a Women’s Tea in the spring.
