Participate in a Life With Jesus Christ

Infant Jesus is a vibrant community with many active groups of all types working either within or with our parish. These groups range in type and mission.

Ministries are usually under the direct guidance of the Pastor and Parish Council.

Liturgical Ministries, are the ministries that support our parish in presenting the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, or they may be involved with the Sacramental Life by assisting the parish in providing the Holy Sacraments such as Baptism, Matrimony and bringing the Eucharist to the home-bound. They also assist in funerals and other services.

Service Ministries, are the ministries that reach out and help our parishioners and community in various ways. Religious Education, or Faith Formation, ministries provide for the education of both children and adults in becoming full members of the Catholic Church by preparing them to receive the Sacraments of Initiation - Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. They also teach about Holy Scripture and the beliefs of our faith. There, of course, are also ministries that support our parishioners ongoing faith development, these include Bible Studies, special presentations and more.

Organizations are those groups that act in cooperation with the Pastor and Parish Council, while being self-governing to a greater extent.

Societies, are groups that may belong to various national and international organizations.

Prayer and Spiritual Groups, are organized groups of individual who come together on a regular basis for prayer or special devotions.

Social Groups, are organized groups of individuals who come together to enjoy communal activities and more.

Event groups, are organized groups of individuals who come together to sponsor a major parish event.

Again, these are diverse groups. None of them can be boxed into one simple mission statement.

These groups can and do perform many functions. One day they will sponsor a wonderful social event full of fun and fellowship. The next week they may be sponsoring or supporting a work social service. Then the might be sponsoring a public presentation on one of the many facets of our faith. So please do not look on the above broad definitions as defining any one group at Infant Jesus.
