Parish Groups

Catechists (Religion Teachers)

A Catechist’s job is to help each child to deepen the faith received at baptism, experience conversion in everyday life, and then extend the invitation to lifelong growth in faith. Catechists are co-wonderers with the children exploring the awesome mystery of God. We have a wonderful group of dedicated catechists and substitute catechists who help to share faith with children in our Parish School of Religion, which consists of grades 1-8 and meets on Mondays in the St. Angela Merici School building, either from 4:00-5:00 pm or 7:00-8:00 pm. For more information, contact Ms. Kathy Lynch.

General Services

This group of adults comes together in small teams to assist with some general services to the parish, such as stuffing inserts into the bulletin or assisting with parish mailings. For more information, contact the Parish Office.

Merici Moms

We hope you can join us every second Tuesday to pray the rosary at 9:30 a.m. in the Social Hall West Room.  If other obligations call, please email any special intentions you would like included in that month.

Contact Rachelle Watters.
