Sister Parish Project

Holy Angels Parish will be a sister parish with the 6+ parishes of the Mary Mother of God Mission in Vladivostok, Russia for the purpose of developing a Catholic faith-filled relationship with them and to be more involved with the universal Catholic Church. The Project has several goals:

  • To develop the understanding of the unity of the church as one in the Body of Christ within our parish by working with the parish and all of its groups
  • To develop a relationship between the parishes by sharing our parish life with them and they with us.
  • To build communion with our sister/twinning parish as one in the Body of Christ through mutual prayer, the celebration of the Mass, the various sacraments and spiritual activities of our parishes.
  • To share our parish activities through emails and items shipped to one another including photos, prayers offered, prayer requests, spiritual and local information, parish and school event items, cards, letters, handmade projects, etc.
  • To exchange visits to one another’s parish to develop personal relationships, as possible.
  • Our annual activities will include, but not be limited to: shipping of school supplies, sharing handmade items, crafts, spiritual items, etc.; hosting speakers and visitors; doing promotional activities, etc.
  • Our annual projects will include but not be limited to: a parish-wide school supply drive, an October spiritual bouquet campaign; a January raffle, and a 0-3 baby clothing appeal.

Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic men's organization, founded in 1882 by Reverend Father Michael J. McGivney as a way for Catholics to provide financial assistance for the widows and orphans of its members. It was founded on the ideals of promoting the concepts of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism, and these same ideals are promoted today.

Meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday of the month at the council hall at 1300 N. Fourth Ave.

Catholic men age 18 or older are invited to join. For more information call (937) 492-9431.

SCC

The Small Christian Community network of Holy Angels Parish is an attempt to enable this Christian Community to support and build up each other so that we may enrich our parish and the Church. Called to support one another we share our resources, our gifts, our talents and our lives so that we may realize in ourselves what it means to be called brothers and sisters in the Lord. We build up Christ's image in each other so that as His Body we may build up His image on earth, so that we may better respond to Christ's command to build the Kingdom of God.

Sacred Heart Altar Rosary Society

A society established for all women of Holy Angels parish to join together to promote devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to provide supplies for the altar and the rectory, and to create a spirit of friendliness and sociability among members and within the parish. Membership fees are $5.00 per year.

The Society meets on the first Monday of May and December and the second Monday of September. Activities include hosting parish receptions several times a year, an annual Blood Bank Canteen, lunch after a funeral if held at the K of C Hall, providing the Lunch Stand at the Parish Picnic and bake sale fundraisers each Spring and Fall.

Soup Kitchen

The Holy Angels Soup Kitchen provides members of our community with a meal and an environment of friendly belonging without discrimination. These lunches are served on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Alpha Center. This ministry wonderfully survives on private donations and dedicated volunteers. As Jesus welcomed the poor and the lonely, so shall we.

Parish Prayer Group

The Holy Angels Prayer Group was formed in 1975 out of a desire to live more fully our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ and to open ourselves to the power of the Holy Spirit. The members come together every Tuesday at 7:00 to worship and praise the Blessed Trinity. We recognize our need to grow and mature in our faith. We share the scriptures and use the gifts of the Holy Spirit to encourage and build up the community. Because we are disciples called to evangelize, we present the Life in the Spirit Seminar which enable others to open themselves to a personal relationship with Christ and to surrender to the power of the Holy Spirit. Members are involved in ministry within the parish and community to serve the needs of others.

“Faith is above all a personal, intimate encounter with Jesus, and to experience his closeness, His friendship, his love; only in this way does one learn to know him ever more, and to love and follow him ever more. May this happen to each one of us.” Pope Benedict XVI

The prayer group takes seriously the scripture “they devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers.” Acts 2:42
