Altar Servers

Our parish altar servers strive to give glory to God through service at His holy altar. They serve at High and Low Masses, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, and other liturgical ceremonies as acolytes, torchbearers, crucifers and in other capacities. This privilege is open to men and boys who have received their first Holy Communion. For those willing to make a serving at Mass a priority, we established in 2019 a chapter of the Guild of St. Stephen, which meets on the first Saturday of each month after the 9 am Mass. Those who would like to serve at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and are unable to join the Guild of St. Stephen are also welcome to do so. Those in either category should contact one of the priests for training, or just show up for the monthly meeting of the Guild of St. Stephen.

CCD Program

The parish program for Catholic education (CCD) provides our students an environment conducive to their highest spiritual, intellectual, and moral development. Parents are as much a part of it as their children, and the parish works as a partner in their children’s Catholic formation. We help parents prepare their children: (1) to seek what is transcendent and eternal, and (2) to succeed in the family, business, and community.

Meeting at the church on Sundays between Masses from August through May, the CCD program offers systematic training in the Catholic faith from kindergarten through 12th grade. The kindergarten class is a nurturing environment that introduces young children to God: how to know, love, and serve Him. The elementary grades build on this introduction by studying the Faith and Life catechetical series as their primary text. The Catholic Children’s Bible and elementary catechisms serve as supplemental texts for these grades. Prayer, knowledge, and spiritual growth are emphasized at this level. The 2nd­-grade class prepares its students for First Holy Confession and First Holy Communion. The texts for this class include Our Holy Faith-Grade 2, the St. Joseph First Communion Catechism, and Fr. Lovasik’s Going to Confession. The upper­-division classes begin with broader themes, but become more specific as the student progresses through the curriculum. The basis for faith, public worship, morality, and prayer is the focus of these classes. The chief theoretical and practical doctrines of the faith are studied in Grade 7, the continuity of religion in Grade 8, Mass and the sacraments in Grade 9, history of the Catholic Church in Grade 10, moral theology in Grade 11, and apologetics in Grade 12. The Fr. Laux high school series provides the primary texts for Grades 7 and 9. Sri’s The Bible Compass, Schumacher’s A Handbook of Scripture Study, Fr. Laux’s Introduction to the Bible, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) introduce Grade 8 to Sacred Scripture, Orlandis’ A Short History of the Catholic Church is the primary text for Grade 10. The CCC and Veritatis Splendor join Fr. Laux’s Catholic Morality as primary texts for Grade 11. The Handbook of Catholic Apologetics, Fr. Laux’s Catholic Apologetics, and the CCC are the texts for Grade 12. Grades 11 and 12 represent capstone courses that arm our graduates with the practical and expository skills needed to evangelize in the modern world.

Choir

The music program comprises a men’s schola cantorum, a women’s schola, a mixed ensemble, and a quartet. The two scholas adorn the liturgy by devotedly singing traditional plainchants from the entire liturgical year, principally at Mass. On most Sundays and feast days, the scholas are joined by a mixed choral ensemble with a repertoire of hymns and motets taken from the Catholic Church’s bounteous musical patrimony. On some solemn occasions the quartet sings too.  For more information, please contact the music director, Shawn Keswani, through the choir’s own website.
