Parish Council meetings are held quarterly. Finance committee meets two times a year.
The Council of Catholic Parishioners (CCP) meets on a quarterly basis. All people of the parish are members. As the Altar Society, the CCW is responsible for various events in the parish including Roll Sunday (held the first Sunday of each month, following Mass), Spring Fling Breakfast/Big Ticket Raffle held annually after Easter, Prayer Chain, Arts and Environment work, welcoming, parish needs, and much more.
Generations of Faith Session planning is conducted on a monthly basis from September through May. Planning is centered around including all members and ages of the Parish. Parishioners and experts from around the area focus on educating our children and youth about the basics of our faith and allows adults to answer their questions about the Catholic faith, explain religious traditions and help them grow in their faith. Generations of Faith sessions are held six times per year from September through March.
