Education / Formation
ACTS is more than a simple retreat “program” - it's designed to implement the New Evangelization in a way that transforms parishes into intentional disciples. Through a weekend retreat and through small faith communities, parishioners are led to live their faith more intentionally on a personal and community level.
An organization open to all women of the parish. The group assists others in need, provides help and donated food for
parish events, and finances items for liturgical worship and religious education. It also supports the spiritual life of its members by encouraging devotion to Mary and the Blessed Sacrament. Meetings are held in meeting room B on the first Monday of each month. Contact the President: Suann Cunningham 419-334-3586
The Bereavement Team ministers to parishioners who are suffering a loss through the death of a loved one. The team ministers through cards, phone calls and visits and also provides resource information to the bereaved in the parish bulletin and local newspaper. The bereavement team co-sponsors a Community Memorial Service as a way to remember loved ones. Contact the parish office 419-332-7339 for more information.
