Christian Service

Our Christian Service department supports the parish in conjunction with the Christian Service Commission as a model and resource of Catholic Social Teaching, enabling the entire parish community to put the social teaching of the Church into action by:

  • Determining the social and justice needs of the community and discerning how to respond and support these needs to achieve justice
  • Supporting the efforts of the parish service organizations (St. Vincent DePaul, Food Pantry, Knights of Columbus, etc.)
  • Coordinating and overseeing parish social events

The Christian Service Commission actualizes the social teaching of the Church by fulfilling specific administrative, educational, and ministerial responsibilities, such as:

  • Pancake Supper
  • Easter Vigil Reception
  • First Communion Reception
  • Parish Picnic
  • Thanksgiving Basket Program
  • Christmas Gift Giving Program
  • Lenten Soup Supper
