Ladies of St. Henry Society (formerly the Altar Society)

Members of the Ladies of St. Henry serve God by assisting with the day to day costs of liturgical needs (wine, hosts, altar cloths, vestments), helping maintain a clean liturgical environment, overseeing the Bereavement Committee, and assisting other charitable needs of the area. They meet the 3rd Thursday of the month from September to May.

Legion of Mary

Members (men and women) become instruments of the Holy Spirit through a balanced program of prayer and service. Works include door-to-door evangelization, parishioner visitation, prison ministry, visitation of the sick or aged, crowd contact, religious education, visiting the newly baptized, Pilgrim Virgin Statue rotations, and meeting the other spiritual needs of the parish community. Legionaries are under the guidance of a spiritual director named by the pastor. The Legion is, in essence, an extension of the pastor.

Members meet once a week for prayer, planning and discussion. They do 2 hours of "definite" work each week in pairs and under the guidance of their spiritual director. The Legion of Mary is open to all Catholics who:

Bereavement Committee..."Blessed are those who mourn..."

The Bereavement committee, coordinated through the Altar society, consists of several parish volunteer groups who are occasionally asked to cook and perhaps serve portions of funeral meals for grieving families whose loved ones are buried through our Parish. This is a beautiful ministry of compassion and evangelization.

Social Committee

Our Social Committee has the wonderful task of finding ways to build up the Body of Christ. They organize and oversee parish socials, covered dish dinners, and other social events. It is also their joy to host receptions for those sacramental events that are at the heart of our Catholic faith.

Seniors Group..."Young at Hearts"

They meet the 1st Tuesday each month at 11:30 a.m. in the Activities Bldg. for a pot luck lunch and to enjoy a sense of community. Speakers, trips and socials are just some of the activities planned by seniors for seniors.
