Love of Neighbor Ministries

Serving Others in Time of Need

Martha’s Helpers

The purpose of this ministry is to assist families after a funeral with a reception. Volunteers set up before, serve during the reception and clean up afterward. We welcome new volunteers as all help is greatly appreciated by our families who have lost a loved one.

Angel Tree

During Advent, parishioners are invited to choose an “angel” from our Christmas tree to provide a designated gift for a child or adult in need. Many of our gifts support Good Shepherd Services or St. Vincent de Paul families in our area. We also invite parishioners to spread Christmas love by adopting a family to provide gifts and household goods as needed.

Cub Scouts

Pack 146 is a youth development program that focuses on adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility and provides the chance to serve God and country, to help others, and develop personally. Meets three times per month at the parish. Children in the 1st thru 5th grades.

Prayer Chain

Anyone can request prayer by writing the person’s name and prayer intention in the Book of Prayer which is on the lectern in the Narthex. The request can be anonymous if one so wishes.  Each Friday a list from this book is distributed to the members of the Prayer Chain for daily prayer throughout the week.

All adults and children are invited to be a prayer partner in the ministry.

Pro-Life

Our mission is to protect all life from the womb to the tomb. Through prayer and action, we seek to end abortion and euthanasia. We host annual parish activities such as: the spiritual adoption of unborn babies to pray for, the Baby Bottle Boomerang to collect gifts and donations that support local pregnancy aid centers, participation in local and national March for Life activities, and praying at local abortion mills.

Our Pro-Life planning meetings are held the 3rd Sunday of each month at 10 a.m.

St. Vincent de Paul

This ministry of lay people discreetly helps families in distress with financial, spiritual and emotional support. They help with rent, utilities, food, to meet basic needs. Training of volunteers is required and is provided.

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Trinity Building.
