How can you serve

We have updated this stewardship directory as of August 2016. Have you received your copy? If not, please pick one up after Mass this weekend. Take one to a friend!

In February 2015, we published a Parish Stewardship Directory. Below is a list of those ministries. Please consider getting involved in one or more of these activities at Immaculate Conception, St. Denis and Holy Family.
