- PLEASE SEE CALENDAR OF EVENTS FOR IMPORTANT DATES OF THESE MINISTRIES -

 

Liturgy:
Offers parishioners the opportunity to minister to the parish at Mass as Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors and Servers. The Liturgy Committee meets 2 to 3 times a year to plan liturgies for the up-coming Liturgical Seasons. There is a decorating group that actually decorates the church for each Liturgical Season. Please make time to consider volunteering in the area of Liturgy.

Children's Liturgy:
Children's Liturgy is where children from the parish go downstairs to our chapel to hear the word of God during the 9 am Mass on Sunday. The children are asked questions and given time to reflect about the readings and the Gospel. Children sing songs and do an activity connected with the readings. Adults and high school aged students are needed to volunteer to be leaders. Students in grades 7 and up can volunteer to be helpers. This is a great opportunity to share God's word with the children of our parish.

Music:
Traditional Choir:
A choir that leads congregational singing at the 9 am Sunday Mass on alternate weekends. Some members also sing for funerals. The choir sings service music, traditional and contemporary hymns, and Latin and Polish music for special occasions. The choir rehearses prior to the seasons of Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter.
Contemporary Choir: A group of women and men that leads congregational singing (accompanied by piano, guitar and flute) at the 9 am Sunday Mass on alternate weekends. The choir sings contemporary songs, traditional hymns and service music. The choir rehearses once a month and prior to Advent/Christmas, Lent/Easter. We welcome youth with vocal and instrumental talents.

Parish Council:
The council consists of seven members. Council meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month. The members discuss parish issues such as maintenance, long and short-term goals, and review committee reports. The council serves to assist the Pastor. The meetings are open to all interested parishioners who want to bring ideas or concerns to the council and Pastor's attention. Term of service is 2 years.

Ushers Club:
The ushers welcome all whom God has sent to our doorsteps. A person's willingness to serve God in the capacity as an usher reflects their commitment to Christ and His Church. St. Casimir Ushers Club has a long history of commitment to the parish and many members have over 40+ years of experience of serving the church. Along with greeting, welcoming parishioners, assisting people to find seats and taking up collections, we also assist and serve at the annual Fall Festival and Parish Picnic. St. Casimir Ushers Club welcomes new members who would like to share their time and talents to serve our parish community.

Altar and Rosary Society:
We were established in the early days of the beginning of the parish and we belong to the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women (Deanery).  During a typical year we do various charitable works: collect and give to East Side Care Center, Trinity Mission, Catholic Medical Mission, Our Lady of Peace Cancer Home, Appalachia Mission Program and we organize bingo for the residents at the Ramsey County Home. We say the rosary for our deceased members and anyone in the parish who requests it. The money we make from our annual fish fry each Lent is donated to the parish. We do many more projects as well.

Vocations:
We have a traveling crucifix and prayer available for families to take home for a week. Families are asked to pray for vocations for young men and women who are contemplating what to do with their lives.

Senior Club:
This social gathering is designed for members of our parish 55 years of age and older. It is a chance to get out of the house once a month for lunch, Bingo, keeping in touch with old and new friends, plus having your blood pressure checked. Join us and enjoy the company.

Maintenance Committee:
The maintenance committee has the task of overseeing the parish property and advising the pastor on situations which need attention, both immediate and long-term. Meetings are held twice a year.

Parish Picnic:
Each year, St. Casimir has Mass at Phalen Park with a potluck picnic lunch. Help is needed to set-up and clean-up.
