Multi-Cultural Commission

Scripture:  “Love God above all else, and love your neighbor as yourself.”     Matthew 22:37-39
                  “Whatever you do to the least of God’s people, you do to Me.”       Matthew 25:40

 

Mission:  Our mission is to help others accept all cultures, by recognizing the diversity of our Faith Community and our neighborhood.

Vision:  We believe that we should love God above all else, and whatever we do for the least of God’s people, we do for Him.

If you would like to be involved in our Commission, please come to one of our meetings. Our meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm in the Parish Center.

If you decide not to actually join our group but want to be part of helping to make these events happen, contact Mike or Phil through the Parish Office.

Meeting schedule subject to change ... please check the parish calendar for current schedule.

 

What Are We?

We promote this awareness, acceptance, and appreciation through the many events that we have throughout the year.

Each year before Lent we have the “Mardi Gras of Cultures” event.

In October, there is our “Getting to Know Us” event.

We promote Outreach and Evangelization in the Community through our participation in the Faith Based Organizations that meet and work with Police District 4 and 7, which extends our Parish presence into the Community and among other local Churches.

We participate in and host various Prison Ministry programs at the Parish, including Restorative Justice Circles, Doing Time Together, and others.

Getting To Know Us

The Parish Getting To Know Us event was held Sat. Oct. 12, in the Parish Hall.

Over 30 folks attended.  Our focus was on getting to know each other and not to just recognize each other.  We learned the names of those around us as well as some information about each person.

Let’s continue that approach at each Mass and parish event.

Jim and Joann Miller are a host family for exchange students. Six exchange students shared information about themselves, their countries and then answered questions from the audience.

This was a success because of those who came to this event. 

THANK YOU from the Multi-Cultural Commission.
