Fr. Jason Malave, Pastor
The Parish Life Commission is a multifaceted ministry that leads the celebration of community in St. Benedict Parish.
Through communication and coordination of social functions, organizations, and events, this group enhances the well being of the parish and cultivates the spirit of Christ and St. Benedict’s welcoming atmosphere in all parishioners, neighbors, and the greater community by celebrating God’s most important gift: one another. Parish Life ministries bring life to the work of the parish by linking memories of the past, joy about the present, and hopes for the future.
