The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Holy Disciples offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.
Religious Education / Faith formation is a vital element of the Catholic life as we grow in knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he gave us. A deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and through the Trinity to the Church and our family, friends, neighbors, parish, and community. Such faith formation is not just for children, but for all of us as we grow as Catholics. Our parish has many opportunities for Religious Education and Faith Formation that we encourage you to explore.
Another way to participate in our parish life are the various parish ministries, including liturgical ministries, such as choir member, lector, altar server, and Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist; pastoral ministries, such as visiting the homebound, praying for the needs of others on the Prayer Line, creating prayer shawls for people experiencing illness; outreach ministries such as serving the poor, volunteering at the food bank and the St. Vincent de Paul Society; and others, such as youth ministry, tutoring, and the annual mission trip, to name just a few. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities for getting involved in ministry. And if you have an idea for a new parish ministry, please contact us.
With so many ways to be part of parish life, you'll want to stay informed by regularly reading the weekly bulletin (currently on hiatus due to COVID-19).
Although a newly established parish, Holy Disciples enjoys a rich history, being founded by people who trusted in the Lord and gathered together under the leadership of our bishop. Who we are today is based on who we were yesterday. Find out more as you read the history of our parish. You can also learn more by taking a virtual tour of our space by clicking here.
