“Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
—Matthew 5:4

St. John’s Bereavement Ministry provides both Catholics and non-Catholics, who have lost a loved one, a caring environment in which the journey through the grieving process is shared through confidential fellowship.

Meetings consist of informal discussions with regard to healthy vs. unhealthy grieving behavior, prayer, song and personal sharing. The bereavement meetings are held in the Vianney Center, on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from
9–10:30 a.m.



This vital ministry assists the clergy in administering the Eucharist at all Masses on Sundays and weekdays. A love for the Eucharist and reverence for its majesty is requisite for this ministry. Training is mandatory and is provided by the parish.


Those commissioned as Extraordinary Ministers for the Homebound bring Communion to the sick, aged, dying and homebound.


A reader has a crucial role in the liturgy, that of proclaiming the Word of God to the congregation. A prospective reader will meet with the Reader Coordinator in the church in order to practice reading and to go over procedures. The most important requirements for a reader are commitment, preparation, technical skill related to microphone use and personal skills. This ministry is open to all adult parishioners who meet these requirements.



The mission of the Respect Life group is to foster an understanding of the sacredness of human life in all its dimensions. As Catholics, we respect life from conception to the moment of natural death. We believe all life is God-given and precious, even the lives of those on death row.



Sacristans have the added responsibility of preparing the sanctuary for the liturgy and, after Mass, getting the sanctuary ready for the next liturgy. Sacristans work closely with the other members of the liturgical team.
Sacristans also assist at baptisms, weddings, and Masses of Christian Burial.
Those who wish to become sacristans serve an apprenticeship with an experienced sacristan and are approved by the pastor before assuming the duties of sacristan.
