How do we help our children find peace of heart through the practice of faith?
“Preparing and going to NCYC was nerve-racking. I had no idea what to expect from this type of conference.

We commissioned our newest Eucharistic minister this past Sunday at the 10:300 Mass. During the commissioning we were reminded of the importance of receiving the Eucharist and being willing to bring the Body of Christ to others. Yianni chose to serve as a Eucharistic Minister after he received the sacrament of Confirmation in March. The next formation meeting to serve as a Eucharistic Minister is on May 11th after the 5:00 Mass. Email email@example.com if you would like to attend.
The Holy Name Society supports the youth ministry at our parish in so many ways. Their generosity to our Vision participant and to the support of the development of our young people's faith makes a difference! We are grateful!

On March 28th at 7: 00pm a group of young people from our parish will receive the sacrament of Confirmation. These young people have been preparing for two years for this moment of Grace. As they complete the final month of preparation to receive the sacrament, St Benedict Youth Ministry would like to extend an invitation to our parishioners to pray for one of these young people, by name.
This Sunday at 10:30am
