Outreach Ministries   .....   Service to All God's People

 
 
What is an annulment? An annulment is a declaration by a tribunal (Catholic church court) that a marriage thought to be valid according to Church law actually fell short of at least one of the essential elements required for a binding union. Unlike civil divorce, an annulment does not erase something that was already there, but rather it is a declaration that a valid marriage was never actually brought about on the wedding day. A declaration of nullity does not deny that a relationship ever existed between the couple, or that the spouses truly loved one another. (USCCB)

Parishioners wishing to pursue the Declaration of Nullity from a previous marriage, please contact the Parish Office at the number below.

Bereavement Ministry
 
 
The purpose of this ministry is to provide support to individuals who are experiencing grief through the death of a loved one.  The Church calls each member of Christ's body to participate in the ministry of consoldation to care for the dying and to comfort all who mourn.  Our Lord is the example of comfort and support to the grieving. 

How can you volunteer? Persons capable of grief and bereavement work with families and who are well grounded in the Catholic faith are welcome to join this beautiful ministry.

Between Jobs Support Group
 
 
If you are unemployed, underemployed, or trying to get back into the workforce, we invite you to join the "Tweeners" group, a faith-based, Spirit-led, and prayer supported group formed to provide support and assistance to help you get your "next" job.  No reservations are necessary.  Please visit our Tweeners information page at: www.tweeners.typepad.com 
Employers:  Are you looking for good talent that's ready and motivated to work for you?  Send us your job requirements, and we will put it in front of our "In-Between Jobs" support group members.

Volunteers:  Change someone's life in only one or two hours a week!  Each Thursday morning 50-75 members of our "In Between Jobs" gather in the Family Center to receive inspiration, direction, and assistance in finding their next jobs.  Won't you give a little time to help our eager jobseekers?  This is a great volunteer opportunity for college students, entrepreneurs, recent retirees, or anyone who has the time and cares about making a difference in people's lives.
