SHARING BRINGS JOY  TO US,  TO OTHERS,  TO GOD!

Members of All Saints Ministry Organizations are parishioners who help the parish in many ways - developing a program, getting it off the ground, evaluating its progress, making changes, and calling others to serve.  The work is diverse, keeping the parish vibrant, and responsive to living the Catolic Faith.  Our six ministry categories cross the parish community and the world:

  • Worship and Liturgy
  • Parish Life
  • Education & Lifelong Learning
  • Youth
  • Outreach
  • Parish Operation and Fundraising

Some groups may have guidelines and a leadership structure, others may be more loosely organized, but what's important is the rich contribution ministries and its members make to our faith community.
