The Parish Life Commission strives to build a deeper sense of Christian community for all ages and interest groups in the parish. The role of the Parish Life Commission is to foster a welcoming and friendly spirit within our parish through ongoing activities, groups and special events. These activities are carried out by the Commission ministries and include ample opportunity to socialize and promote a feeling of shared values among parishioners.
The Basilica of Saint Lawrence is a vibrant parish with over 1200 registered families. As chair of the Parish Life Commission I want to make sure that all parishioners have opportunities to be involved in the life of the parish.
Spearheading such a large commission requires many hearts and hands to meet the variety of needs of a parish of this size.
I invite and encourage everyone to get involved both to serve and to be served. A thriving parish needs Marthas and Marys. Why not be both?
Please take the time to study the current groups and events to see where your interests lead you and where your talents can be put to good use.
Your servant in Christ,
Parish Life Commission Chair
