MINISTRIES

Pope Francis tells us to “not live a mediocre Christian life: walk with determination along the path of holiness.” The various ministries at St. Mary of the Crown and St. Vincent aspire to guide parishioners and guests along the path of holiness, while growing in fellowship with one another. Whether a young family or adult, lifelong Catholic or non-Catholic, we offer ministry opportunities for every age, vocation, and walk of life.
