The movement is one in which various Christian churches work     together for unity in building relationships in Christ.

As a trained minister of Communion, you are called on to serve the Body of Christ to the Church. Like all ministries, this is a great honor and a great responsibility.

Scouting is spiritual and values-based, providing opportunities for girls 5–17 years old to develop and practice new skills, and earn recognition in the form of badges and patches.

Liturgy Committee

Working with the Pastor, we coordinate the several special    liturgies throughout the year.

Lincoln Hospital daily, minister to bereaved families at the time of death; and offer a grief support group and a caregiver support group.

Ministers of the Word (Lectors)

Money Counters

We gather weekly to process parish collections accurately, following good business guidelines.

Music Ministry

Music serves the community by helping it express the gift of faith within us, and by guiding the community toward full, active participation in every worship gathering.  The goal of every  music minister is to assist the assembled in joining with Christ Who is always at the center of our musical prayer.  Vocalists and instrumentalists are welcome.

Office Volunteers

Occasional help is needed with bulk mailings, filing, stuffing  bulletins with inserts, and assembling worship aids.

Our Lady of the Wayside Sodality

Open to practicing Catholic women. Members live a life of consecration to our Blessed Mother in order to be under her special protection and to live in imitation of her. The special apostolate at MHT is: first, to do all possible to help within our own family and daily surroundings, then, to do all possible to help MHT  Parish.

Pastoral Council

This planning and advisory group to the Pastor focuses on advancing the apostolic role of the laity and the apostolic potential of the parish.
