Inviting Catholics Home
This ministry provides a no-stress way for inactive Catholics to explore their options to again become active Catholics. It provides an advocate to discuss current issues and feelings about the Church and Faith and to help remove any barriers or misconceptions that may exist.

The Dinner Club
The mission of St Brendan’s Dinner Club is to bring parishioners closer to one another as members of the Body of Christ. Everyone belongs. Bonds are created as we break bread together and swap stories, creating real friendships.
The Dinner Club ministry team combines registered couples into “clubs” of 4 couples with similar profiles (i.e. small children, grown children, no children, newlyweds, singles, etc.) to enjoy 4 shared meals that are hosted at the couples’ homes over the course of 5 months. To register, please contact Rhonda Timko.

Christmas Giving Tree
St Brendan parishioners donate gifts for local families and social service agencies. Volunteers sort and prepare the gifts for distribution to families. This project covers just a few weeks and requires very little time, but we do need volunteers to assist with the tree preparation and the gift sorting.
