Fellowship Ministries:

Bereavement Meal Ministry:

Members of the parish are invited to help prepare and serve a meal in our parish activity center after a funeral service. This ministry of consolation was started in 1972 and is devoted to helping families in their time of need. The ministry meets only as needed to organize and prepare a meal that can be shared by the grieving family.

There are no special qualifications needed for this ministry other than a welcoming smile and a friendly disposition. Our message is: “Welcome, we are so glad to have you here today!”

Hospitality ministers are asked to be available in the Church Narthex 30 minutes before Mass to welcome the faithful as they come in for Mass. They may offer help in various ways, such as providing directions or opening doors for those who need assistance.

It is so very rewarding to have the opportunity to meet so many people and be one of the first to greet a new parishioner or a visitor. Please consider serving as hospitality ministers are needed at every Mass.

A coordinator is needed for this ministry, please call Adrian DeLaCruz if you would like to serve, 512-259-3126.

Senior Citizen Social Group:

Senior citizens are cordially invited to socialize at monthly potluck lunch. In addition to the social events, seminars on important and timely topics are coordinated with various agencies. Meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month in the parish hall. This is a very popular monthly event and volunteers are needed to help set up and clean up after the luncheon. Some seniors need transportation assistance so if you can help with the carpool effort, that’s another way you can help our neighbors.

Social Committee:

The intent of the social committee is to foster friendship and a sense of community among parishioners. We work with the Pastoral Council and other organizations in the parish to plan and put on fun community activities and events such as Springfest, Fall Fest, a Christmas Dinner, and the annual Easter Egg Hunt. We sponsor a Kid’s Night Out every month to give parents a breather while their children meet other children in the parish. This committee is perfect for those interested in meeting people, building parish community and working on the lighter side of parish life.
