Babysitting is provided free of charge. Childcare space is limited so please email prior to attending. Infants are welcome to stay with mom.

The Parish Life Committee was one of the first non liturgical ministries begun shortly after the beginning of our Parish with the first Wine and Cheese Social at the Knights Hall. For many years they took care of registration and welcoming Socials for new Parishioners; twice a year they produce gourmet dinners for the Priests who participate in the Penance Services; they assist in Parish dinners large and small when requested by the Pastor or other ministries; they provide set up and service for after Funeral repasts in conjunction with the Funeral Ministry. They have been the point of contact regarding food for Hails and Farewells, Anniversaries, our Grand Opening and our tenth anniversary celebration. Our Committee is made up of both Ladies and Gentlemen and generally meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 2 PM in the Parish Life Center.
