"Seeing with the eyes of Christ, I can give to others much more than their outward necessities; I can give them the look of love which they crave."
― Pope Benedict XVI
To see with the eyes of Christ, we need to help people grow in their relationship with Him. We have ministries to help guide people on that path, and then help others walk that same path with them. Learn about some of the ministries at Immaculate Heart of Mary, what they do, and how you can become involved.
Our Faith Formation program is the heart of our Parish. We offer classes for all ages and groups, from our Sprouts program, Youth, RCIA, to our adult bible studies. Our journey as Catholic Christians does not end at Baptism, Confirmation and Communion; our journey with Christ is life-long, and has no bounds.
To make all of these journeys possible, we need support. We need teachers, hall monitors, cooks, and more. To learn more about our programs, or how to support these programs, visit our Faith Formation page.
The word "liturgy" originally meant a "public work" or a "service in the name of/on behalf of the people." In Christian tradition it means the participation of the People of God in "the work of God." Through the liturgy Christ, our redeemer and high priest, continues the work of our redemption in, with, and through his Church. - CCC 1069
Our Liturgical ministry assists in delivering the experience in the Mass, and in how we experience a personal communion with Christ. To do this, we need servers, Extraordinary Ministers, Homebound/Nursing communion, and more. To learn more, visit our Liturgy page.
Scripture speaks throughout of marriage and its "mystery," its institution and the meaning God has given it, its origin and its end, its various realizations throughout the history of salvation, the difficulties arising from sin and its renewal "in the Lord" in the New Covenant of Christ and the Church. - CCC 1602
Our Family Life ministry, under the leadership of Linda Kalkhorst, is there to assist you and your family from Womb to Tomb.

Dear young people, listen closely to the words of the Lord, that they may be for you "spirit and life" (Jn 6:63), roots which nourish your being, a rule of life which likens us – poor in spirit, thirsting for justice, merciful, pure in heart, lovers of peace – to the person of Christ. - Benedict XVI
At Immaculate Heart of Mary, our youth ministry program seeks to lead middle school and high school aged youth closer to Christ.

We are always open to new members and look forward to meeting you or your teens.
Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work. - St Teresa of Calcutta

The Christian family constitutes a specific revelation and realization of ecclesial communion, and for this reason it can and should be called a domestic church. It is a community of faith, hope, and charity; it assumes singular importance in the Church, as is evident in the New Testament. - CCC 2204
Our Events ministry manages all of the great happenings at our parish, from special guest speakers and events, to helping our parishioners celebrate their marriages and other events using our facilities. To learn more, visit our Events page.
Communication is a means of expressing the missionary vocation of the entire Church; today the social networks are one way to experience this call to discover the beauty of faith, the beauty of encountering Christ. In the area of communications too, we need a Church capable of bringing warmth and of stirring hearts. - Pope Francis
Our Communications ministry works to evangelize through technology, including web, social media, marketing, and more. In addition, the Communications ministry is responsible for all audio/video in the parish, and information technology.
