HOW TO GET INVOLVED
We'd love to hear from you. If you'd like to join one of these groups or just get more information, please complete the Group Interest Form located to the right of this column.
True to it’s name, this young at heart group meet periodically to socialize and support parish activities. Typical activities include get togethers, restaurant dining, participation in diocesan events and service projects.
Divorced and Separated Catholics
This new group is in the process of being formed. We are looking for anyone interested in the support this group provides as well as being a mentor or team leader. Watch the weekly bulleting and this site for additional updates.
"We are Catholic Men, Linked as Brothers in Jesus Christ, and Called to Bring Him & Service to Others!"
Calling men of all ages! This new group focuses on service to the parish community with monthly meetings, service projects, and fellowship with a purpose. We invite all men in the parish to join and support this group where service to all members of the parish is its main responsibility, along with sharing and growing in our Catholic faith and our role as men in the church.
African-American Affairs Ministry Group
The local AAA Ministry at the Basilica is a natural extension of the African American Affairs Ministry of the Diocese of Charlotte. We support its mission statement and participate in its goals and objectives to the degree appropriate at the parish level. Particularly as it pertains to our own parish community, richly and culturally diverse, of which seven to ten 10 percent of our registered families are African-Americans. Furthermore, this specific population, in its entirety, is active in our parish community.
If you've ever lost someone close to you, then you are probably aware of the overwhelming feelings that accompany such difficult times. Our Bereavement Committee seeks to lessen the burden on the bereft by providing a simple meal in Laurentine Hall following the funeral of a loved one. The meal is for immediate family (up to 30 people). In the event that the bereft accept our meal offering, those who assist in this committee have to be available at a moments notice. This act of kindness is a corporal work of mercy.
Neighborhood Care Groups
All parishioners are invited to register for this parish community connection. Our parishioner base is spread over a large area. Sometimes it’s nice to know there is help around the corner when you need a hand. Examples of this ministry are: providing a meal for new parents, helping when parishioners are under the weather, providing transportation to Masses, etc.
Whether you need help or are willing to give help to parishioners in your area, Neighborhood Care Groups need you.
