Service and Outreach

To the Homebound

Our Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion frequently visit the sick of our three parish communities. If you are interested in this ministry please contact us or speak to a priest after Mass.

To the poor

St. Vincent de Paul
Founded in 1948, the St. Vincent de Paul Society has strived to minister to the poor and needy. The Society responds daily to emergency situations involving families and individuals in need of financial or other assistance due to many problems occurring in their lives. Assistance with food, rent, medicine, utility bills, and other necessities of life are available. Clients are visited in their homes on a one-to-one basis. A portion of the clients are referred to other agencies for assistance, such as counseling.

Both St. Mary Star of the Sea and St. John the Evangelist have St. Vincent de Paul Societies. Brian Murphy is the president at St. Mary’s and Roel Kromhout and Bill Phelan are responsible for St. John’s. Please contact our office for more information.

To the community

Knights of Columbus
The Knights meet on theĀ first Sunday of the month at St. Mary Star of the Sea Convent. Please contact our office for more information.
