New Milestones Ministry Committee
It's become clear from Strong Catholic Families sessions, youth surveys, and committee assemblies held over the past year and a half that there's a need to help our youth and adults better connect their faith with daily life, help families establish strong faith practices and traditions, and help parishioners get to know each other better.
One response to this need has been the establishment of a Milestones Ministry Committee. This team is looking at ways for our parish to recognize and bless significant events in the lives our parishioners, as well as, developing resources for families to use at home.
This year the team is focusing on milestones having to do with school, marriage, birth and military service. Beginning this month, there will be a monthly birthday blessing for those who have a birthday each month. Watch for recognition of other milestones as we go through the year.
