Bereavement and Lazarus Ministries:
In the name of Jesus Christ, we have established an organized response to the needs of the members of this parish who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. The goal of this ministry is that no member of our faith community grieves alone. Those grieving need to feel God's love in time of crisis and pain. A caring community needs to heed Jesus' call to bring His love to those who are suffering. Please consider being a part of this ministry.
"Rejoice with those who rejoice, and mourn with those who mourn." Romans 12:15

St. Vincent DePaul Society:
The St. Vincent DePaul Society was founded over 100 years ago in Paris, France, and named in honor of the great saint who spent his life assisting the poor. Besides working to alleviate the needs of the poor in the parish itself, the Conference of the Church of the Resurrection helps the many transients who arrive in the area and find themselves in immediate need of financial help for necessitates such as food. The Society is a volunteer group and is funded by voluntary donations, mainly through the "Poor Boxes" situated at the entrances of the church. For more information, please see the St Vincent dePaul page on this website.
Contact: Parish Center, 481-7171

There are books, devotionals, gifts, greeting cards, and holy cards for all occasions including: Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, Weddings, etc. Volunteers are needed for Saturdays and Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Please come in and shop.
