One of the blessings of belonging to such a large and active parish is the opportunity to participate in a variety of events and activities designed to bring us together in faith, fun and the spirit of togetherness!


Parish Hall

Read about Volunteer opportunities through Parish Commissions including social justice and outreach, and liturgical ministries.

See below for Event Volunteer information; volunteer signups are posted as needed.

In addition to providing opportunities to gather together, our events provide important funds needed to operate our large -- and growing -- parish. The Parish Savings for the Future fund provides needed monies necessary when repairs arise, or facility updates are required at the parish, school and religious education programs. Your participation and support of our events is essential in attending, but also in volunteering to help us plan and hold all of these events.

Thank You Volunteers!
