Stewardship / Ministry Directory
Giving of your prayer, participation, and generosity is stewardship in action.
We invite you to learn more and to participate in our many parish lay ministries. It's a great way to strengthen your relationship with other parish members and is an extension of your Catholic Faith. In its simplest definition, lay ministry is the work of those who are not professional clergy. At Sacred Heart Parish, we see lay ministry as an opportunity to serve in the faith community beyond simply attending Mass each week. It is the ministry of the people of God through their everyday gift of time and talent.
Below is a comprehensive guide to the ministries available at Sacred Heart Church and School, as well as in our Catholic community.
