Linen Ministry: What is the Linen Ministry and can you help?


The Linen Ministry is a quiet ministry, which operates behind the scenes. This in-home ministry takes care of the washing and ironing of the purificators, corporals, towels and albs used at every Mass.


Ironing is not a glamorous or fun job, but for most of us a necessary part of our housework. Frequency of service depends on the number of participants. Team members are assigned to a specific month when they will pick up the used linens from the Work Sacristy, after the last Sunday Mass, wash and iron them, and return them to the Work Sacristy by Thursday.

If you are looking for a way to serve the parish in your home, this may be your calling.
At the present time 1 new minister is needed on a monthly basis or as a substitute. Please call the Parish Office or contact Donna Pfaff at donna.pfaff@dsj.org to help fill this need.

Every First Friday of the Month, our daily mass begins at 8:45 a.m. and will include the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. 

If you would like to be anointed or know of someone who would like to celebrate this special sacrament of God's love, please encourage them to attend or bring them along with you to Mass.

Also, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament ends with Benedition at 10:30 a.m.

Hand In Hand In Ministry” is the theme for our 2019 Annual Diocesan Appeal. This reminds us that, as Catholics, each of us has received the invitation to join as members of one community of faith for the works of justice, mercy, outreach and formation in our Parishes, our Diocese and the global Church.
