Parish Life

The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.

Faith formation is a vital element of the Catholic life as we grow in knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he gave us. A deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and through the Trinity to the Church and our family, friends, neighbors, parish, and community.

Our parish is moving toward Lifelong Faith Formation in order to engage all parishioners in growing in our Faith.  Click on the Faith Formation menu for more information about what is currently offered for Adult Faith Formation and Children's Religious Education, as well as a discription of Lifelong Faith Formation, Intergenerational Faith Formation, and the parish plan for implementation of this model for growing in relationship with God.

Another way to participate in our parish life is by serving in the various parish ministries, including:

  • liturgical ministries, such as choir member, lector, altar server, and Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist;
  • social justice ministries, such as visiting the homebound, Prision Ministry, participating in various food, school materials and clothing drives held throughout the year, and participating in Respect Life activites offered throughout the year; 
  • and others, such as men's and women's groups, youth activities, the Annual Parish Bazaar, and booths at the yearly Logan County Fair, sponsored by St. Anthony's parish, to name just a few.

God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities for getting involved in ministry. And if you have an idea for a new parish ministry, please contact us.

With so many ways to be part of parish life, you'll want to stay informed by regularly reading the weekly bulletin available through this website, just in case you've misplaced the one you received at Mass. You’ll also want to check the parish calendar for a list of events and Mass schedules.

Our parish has a rich history in our town, being founded by people who trusted in the Lord and gathered together under the leadership of our bishop. Who we are today is based on who we were yesterday. Find out more about our spiritual forefathers as you read the history of our parish.

We hope you'll also enjoy viewing photos of our parish, including some of the many enjoyable events and programs we've had over the years.
