Eucharistic Ministers \ Lectors

We thank you for prayerfully considering our Lord’s call to serve in His Name
Eucharistic Ministers are trained lay ministers with a deep understanding of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the bread and wine. Eucharistic Ministers share the Body and Blood of Christ with the community of parishioners united by a common faith. They assist the priest in distributing the body and Blood of Christ during Mass and by taking the body and blood into the community to those not able to be in church. Through their service, members strive to fulfill the Lord’s command to Peter, “Feed my sheep.” John 21:17

“Go out to all the world and proclaim the Good News.” Mark 16:15
The Lector/Reader is responsible for reading aloud excerpts of the scripture during the liturgy. From the very beginning, Christians have gathered together to hear the word of God, and, from the very beginning, there have been individuals entrusted with the task of reading the word.

Please contact Cathy at the office for more information (609)-390-0664.

Saint Maximilian's Helpers

Saint Maximilian Helpers are parishioners who volunteer to help fellow parishioners with a variety of tasks such as rides to medical appointments; Mass or confession; running errands; shoveling your steps and sidewalk; putting out the trash; vaccination appointment scheduling and transport; occasional meals; help with setting up live-streaming of the Mass on your computer; and friendly visiting by telephone. This is a pilot program, so we need to start small. At the moment, we are able to assist parishioners in the vicinity of Saint Casimir Church (Woodbine, Dennis, Tuckahoe, Belleplain). We serve adult parishioners of all ages (18 +) and all life stages. Parishioners who would like some help or telephone visiting, need to opt-in by completing a form. Then, a helper is assigned to them. Right now, there are no in-person meetings for volunteers. We stay in touch by phone and email. More volunteers are gladly welcomed! Questions? Please call Lisa at 609-861-0198. We look forward to hearing from you!

Saint Vincent de Paul Society

In the Gospel today, Jesus says “Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me.” 

When we help the poor, we are truly followers of  Jesus, servant of the poor.  And now, the need is truly intense.  Many neighbors are struggling to get full week’s work and manage the health impacts due to COVID.  We have served our neighbors in rent, utilities, transportation, and infant supplies.  In the past two months, over $4500 has been disbursed in your name!  We thank you for your generosity, through which you have been the servant of the poor.

By placing a gift in the Poor Box for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, you will give a sign of God’s love to those who are suffering, and you will inspire them with Easter hope and joy. 

You can share in the role as “servant of the poor” ministry by calling 609-938-6553.  We welcome the many talents you can muster!


Meetings, 1st Wednesday/month 6:00 pm
