Church Ministries

If you are interested in serving in a Church ministry, please pick up a form in the back of church.  A description of each ministry is attached. Please return it to the office or place it in the collection basket  We are very much in need of help in all of the ministries.  We will have a workshop in  the near future.  There are many ways to be more involved in your parish!  The ministries include Lector, Extraordinary Minister, Usher / Greeter, Sacristan, Church Cleaning, Choir, Commentator, Altar Server, Devotion to Mary, and St. Martin de Porres.

** There will be a Training Workshop with Fr. Daniel on Saturday, July 15th at 9:00 am.  Current ministries should also attend the workshop.


JUNE 17th & 18th

Beginning at age 65, priests of the Diocese of Biloxi who do not belong to a
Religious Order are provided with a modest pension. The funds for this pension come from an
endowment to which parishes pay a yearly assessment. There is also a small supplement to the
pension from the Catholic Sharing Appeal. These pension/retirement income sources have not kept
pace with inflation. Rather than asking parishes to contribute more to the endowment, the Diocese
has opted to have a direct appeal on Father’s Day. The annual second collection will supplement
the pension given to diocesan priests of retirement age. Please give generously to the Father’s Day
Special Collection (June 17th / 18th) for the well deserving priests of the Diocese of Biloxi.


The Father’s Day Mass cards are in the back of the church. Please write the name of the father being honored on the large envelope, place your donation inside, and place it in the collection. Keep the card and smaller envelope to send to the person for whom the Mass is being celebrated. If you are honoring a deceased father, please use the “In Memory of a Father” envelope. ** Please return the large envelope with the names so the Mass intentions may be kept on the altar during the month of June. Father’s Day is Sunday, June 19th.
