Create a New Ministry

How to Start a New Ministry

Our parish ministries are the living sign of the gospel at work in our midst.  We encourage the formation of new ministries that will respond to the ever-changing needs of our parish community and will promote deeper engagement in parish life. 

To ensure the continued viability, vitality and quality of all of our ministries, the formation of a new ministry must be given careful consideration with respect to mission, organization, funding, leadership, personnel, facilities use, calendar of events and all requirements.  This careful consideration will facilitate the successful integration of the new ministry into parish life and its sustainability for the long-term.

All new ministries must be recommended by the Commission to which it will belong and approved by the Pastoral Council.
