Family Life

Family Life Apostolate is a ministry within our parish that serves, encourages and celebrates all families in our homes and church community.  It is the blending of our families that enables us to grow and be renewed in our faith community. 
  • We WELCOME new parishioners with a reception, personal notes, and invitations to parish functions. 
  • Support is offered to the families of the BEREAVED with personal notes, Mass cards, and prayers.  Coffee and pastries are provided in the conference room for families and friends during the visitation when held in church. 
  • FLA offers PRAYER support through our prayer line via e-mail.  There are presently 197 parishioners who receive the intentions that are sent to the prayer line on a regular basis.  There is a prayer request book located in the back of the church and all these intentions are included in the Prayers of the Faithful at our weekend Masses. 
  • FLA's HOSPITALITY includes parish wide Potluck dinners, a Married Couples Dinner, Wine and Cheese for Married Couples, Missions Reception, Family Day Masses, Poster and Essay Contests, and other family activities as they develop. 

It would be a blessing to have your gifts and talents as FLA reaches out to our parish family.  Whether you are a male or female, single, married, divorced or widowed, you are part of God's family.  Please join us as a member.  We have membership meetings twice a year and Chair meetings every other month.  We value your time and talents.  FLA is currently trying to expand our ministries to serve families with young children and the elderly.  If you are interested, contact Dianne at the parish office at 504-835-0324, ext 301.
