If you are interested in volunteering for one of these committees, an event, or want to create an event, please contact Kandi Kukas at


Publicity Committee - this committee would publicize not just social activities, but all the good works done through the Parish. Great things are done throughout our community, but unless they are publicized through all different media (cable, newspapers, Facebook, website, bulletin inserts and weekly alter announcements, email, Twitter) not everyone knows what is taking place. 4 volunteers for this work out well.


Welcoming Committee -these volunteers would assist with coffee and donuts after mass, reach out to new families and parishioners joining the parish, and welcome people as they come into Mass each week. The more volunteers on this committee the better!


Hospitality Committee – This group would help cook, and set up for various get-togethers / meetings both in the rectory meeting room and in the hall. If you love to cook, bake and set a beautiful table, this could be your ministry!


All are welcome to participate and volunteer!!
