Ministries - Liturgy

NEEDED…stewards who are eager to serve at the mass you normally attend. You would need to know how to open a Power Point presentation and to advance the slides used during mass. These slides will be seen on the monitors throughout the church, for the expressed purpose of promoting participation by parishioners through song and prayer. If you are interested in serving in this new and important ministry, please contact Deacon Ron Arnold at or 760 207-3201 so a thorough explanation and trial practice can be scheduled.

ALSO NEEDED…stewards who have some basic computers skills regarding simple page layout combining photos and captions. You would need to have a computer and an email address. After receiving the photos and captions from parishioners, you would than use your page layout skills to create a “Life in the Parish” page to be used on the Parish Website and as a bulletin insert. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please contact Deacon Ron Arnold at or 760 207-3201.

Food is being sold in the Fr. Ullman Hall following all the Sunday Masses. Please join our parish family in breaking bread together. All proceeds will go to assist in paying off the Capital Campaign debt quicker.

Christian Funeral Ministry
The funeral ministry provides options and guidance for the family regarding types of services, dates and times, and liturgy and music. Call the parish office, 760-945-8000.

Sacrament of Marriage
Marriage is the sacrament by which Christ Jesus joins a man and a woman in a life-giving and permanent union. In the Catholic faith, marriage is considered a sacrament-sign made sacred by Christ to show His presence in the world and to help all people reach a closer union with God. This sacrament of marriage asks the couple to enter into a loving covenant with God and one another and to live faithfully as one forever.

Please contact the parish office, 945-8000, to discuss the marriage preparation process at least 9 months before the date you would like to get married.
