Parish Groups

Church Mice: This weekly service ministry is responsible for changing the missalettes and replenishing the welcome cards in the pews on Monday mornings after the 8:45 am Mass. All parishioners are welcome. Contact Maureen Tully by leaving a messgae at the Parish Office at 704.364.5431.

Coffee and Donuts: Ministry encourages our church family to become more involved in the Christian life we offer. It allows us to become better acquainted with the families in our church while serving them. Children and adults alike love the donuts and fellowship. This ministry staffs the Masses on select Sundays, sets up tables, prepares drinks and donuts, serves our fellow parishioners and cleans up after (the church provides the food and supplies). This function takes place in the Fellowship Hall and volunteers sign up in advance. Contact Jack York at jackyork@hotmail.com.
