Alzheimer and Dementia Caregiver Support

As a caregiver, you likely have many responsibilities. It is important to take care of your own well-being and to connect with others that understand. Our caregivers group does this, plus offers the support of other caregivers sharing their experiences to help each other on this journey with a loved one.

 

Being a caregiver is the hardest job that most of us will do in our lifetime, it is full of every emotion you can imagine and some you can’t. It is trying to make rational decisions every day with emotions getting in the way. No one has all the answers to everything, but chances are excellent that another caregiver has had an experience that is similar to yours and can offer things they tried or you can help them with things you have done. Caregiving takes a village with all ways to provide you with tips for taking care of yourself plus providing the best things to keep your loved one safe and well cared for.

King David's Men

Catholic men of St. Anthony of Padua: We are preparing to form a new fellowship at our parish called King David’s Men, a ministry program started in 2013 by the nonprofit counseling organization for Catholics called Gratia Plena. This is a small group designed to support healthy sexual behavior, whether single, engaged or married. As our culture constantly attacks the sanctity of marriage and relationships through pornography, infidelity, and more, it’s more important now than ever for men to be united in fellowship and faith.

Men of this new brotherhood might have already overcome most of these temptations, or they may still be wrestling with them, and may have wondered why God would allow them to have struggled with this area in your life thus far. This group may provide you with the answers and an effective pathway toward healing. Please consider being part and helping begin a transformational process that can have a dramatic and widespread positive impact on our parish community.

 

‘Take courage, Jesus is calling you” – Mark 10:49

FUNERAL PLANNING

 

We are here to assist you in the planning of the Funeral Mass following the death of a loved one. The first step is to fill out the form below so that we can capture your information and help you plan the funeral. The Funeral Liturgy Guide will help you navigate the selection of readings and music.

 

Funeral planning can be done at any time. Please contact us for an appointment if you are interested in pre-planning a funeral for yourself or a loved one.

 

When one of its members dies, the Church encourages the celebration of the Mass.  In the proclamation of the Scriptures, the saving word of God through the power of the Holy Spirit becomes living and active in the minds and hearts of the community. Having been strengthened at the table of God’s word, the community calls to mind God’s saving deeds and offers the Father in the Spirit the Eucharistic sacrifice of Christ’s Passover from death to life, a living sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, of reconciliation and atonement. Communion nourishes the community and expresses its unity.  In communion, the participants have a foretaste of the heavenly banquet that awaits them and are reminded of Christ’s own words: “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood shall live forever.” (John 6:55)  Confident in  Jesus’ presence among them in the living word, the living sacrifice, the living meal, those present in union with the whole church offer prayers and petitions for the deceased, whom they entrust to God’s merciful love. – Order of Christian Funerals, #154
