Parish Organizations

Every one of our parishioners has a distinctive set of gifts and traits that can benefit the parish in some way. We urge you to get involved and find out what you can do to keep the work moving forward. On this page, we’ll keep a list of our various parish organizations and committees, and we’ll update it regularly with the latest contact information. We look forward to your contribution!
