You are cordially invited to join us at the
St. Benedict Parish MINISTRY FAIR on Sunday morning November 12th.
Visit us after Mass in the Gym for refreshments, fellowship and to learn more about our Parish Ministries. 
There are over 60 ministries at St. Benedict Parish. The ministry activities differ, just as there are many different types of people in the parish. The goal for our Parish Ministry Fair is to celebrate the many ways that we are using our talents and gifts to reflect God’s love, and to help others find a place of joyful service.
In addition to fellowship, this event allows parishioners to gather information, ask questions and explore opportunities for sharing their gifts and growing in their faith at St. Benedict. 
Stop by and see us after Mass on November 12th. Thank you and God Bless!
