“Thy will be done”

A stewardship parish strives to nourish the soul through prayer. Prayer and the sacraments dispose a soul to receive God’s abundant graces, which are necessary to grow in holiness. There is a deep connection between the Eucharistic celebration, thanksgiving and stewardship-ways to thank God.

In Christian tradition, liturgy means the participation of the people of God in “the work of God”. Through the liturgy, Christ our redeemer and high priest continues the work of our redemption in, with, and through His Church” (Catechism of the Catholic Church para. 1069)

Children’s Liturgy is a program that supports children preschool age through the 2nd grade with their understanding of Mass and the Liturgy of the Word.  The program takes place every Sunday during the 9 o’clock Mass throughout the school year. Two to three volunteers are needed each week to help with the children.  The teaching materials are specific and very little advance preparation is required.

The Guitar Group was formed to give our parish a means of worshiping God through upbeat instrumental and vocal music. Our members are high school students and adults and we practice one and one-half hours before the Mass we are singing. We sing two to three times a month and on most Holy Days. No formal training is required; however, if your instrument is not in the Key of C, you will need to be able to transpose your own music. We have an upbeat group that tries to bring the entire congregation into the spirit of praise during the celebration of the Mass. New members are always welcome.
