Volunteer Photographers

In an attempt to better document our parish’s active life on our website, we are seeking photographers to volunteer their services to take digital pictures and video clips of upcoming events, activities and liturgical services. This is an important ministry as YOU will be the “eyes” of our parish to the world! For further instructions, please contact Fr. John at 954-467-1515 or Email


We are looking for faithful members to give their time, talent and voices to join our choir, under the leadership of Patricia Zeiler, to give praise and honor in song to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You do not have to have a perfect voice—All you need is a love for Christ and a desire to honor Him with all you heart, mind and voice. Please contact the church office at 954-467-1515.
