The Christian Service Commission assists in the caring for the physical needs of our parish
as well as the needs of the community. Keeping in mind that we are our "neighbor's keeper",
we remain conscious of that responsibility.
Commitments of the Christian Service Commission include:
• Food depot collection
• Contact with parish shut-ins with cards, flowers and visits
• Distribution of Thanksgiving baskets for those in need
• Advent Tree project
• Red Cross blood bank drives
• St. Vincent de Paul soup kitchen and clothing drive
• Welcomes new parishioners... and other projects

Nursery: Provides care for infants through 3 years of age during the 9:30 am and 11:30 am Mass in the carpeted meeting room.
Religious Education Classes: For students in grades 1 through 9.
Meets weekly on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday from 6:00 - 7:00 pm.
Adult Formation: Various programs are offered to deepen the faith of Catholic adults in the parish. These study classes, lectures and meetings are continually taking place.

This commission formulates liturgies which help make each liturgical season and major feast celebration come alive in creative and meaningful ways.
