Consider serving St. Kevin’s in a parish ministry
It is time to replenish our various ministries here at St. Kevin. We especially welcome any new parishioners to get involved. Sign up after all Masses in the sacristy. Please review the listing and descriptions of just a few of these ministries below and consider becoming more involved in our parish by signing up and participating. Training is provided and you will be able to choose which Mass you prefer to serve at when you sign up. Have a great week and God bless,
—Fr. Bob Marciano
|Lectors: Reading and proclaiming the Word of God at Mass is an important ministry as it lends such beauty to our liturgies. Come and help to proclaim the Good News.
Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist: Assisting the Priest and Deacon distributing Holy Communion is a most special role. As you can see, we need four per Mass to be able to serve those who come to us (and five when the choir is here). Saying “The Body of Christ” to follow parishioners is a great privilege.
Altar servers: Our young people from grades 4 and up are invited to assist at the altar on weekends, at funerals and at weddings. We already have 14 students from the school who will begin training as teams. Classes will be led by Sister Joan Hawkins, SSJ, new to our parish from St. Francis, and serving as our new Pastoral Assistant. We especially invite high school aged young people to sign up and welcome back the many who stopped serving due to the pandemic. Help make our liturgies more prayerful.
|Choir: “When we sing we pray twice,” as St. Augustine once said. This wonderful group led by Bryan Barrette is a jewel of our parish and can use your voice to be even better. Come and sing a new song to the Lord! Rehearsals are held weekly at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Collectors: At every weekend Mass we have men and women who assist passing the basket to allow our parishioners to practice the gift of charity in support of our parish. We are in special need of a coordinator and collectors at the Sunday noon Mass.
Ladies of St. Kevin: This is a great group of dedicated women of all ages who gather for spiritual, social and parish events. They are a powerful and prayerful group that supports the parish in many ways. Meetings are held each month on Monday nights.
St. Vincent de Paul Conference: Helps the poor and needy with food, rent assistance, etc. Monthly meetings are held to organize these efforts.
Parish Giving is a safe, secure, and easy way to support St. Kevin and St. Benedict parishes by making your weekly budget donations online. Due to the social distancing guidelines requiring the temporary cancellation of weekend Masses, budget collections have dropped significantly even though the operating costs for our parishes have remained fairly level. Registering for a personal and secure online Parish Giving account is an easy way to continue to support our parishes during these confusing times.
