The Bereavement Committee is a group that offers support to members of our parish who have lost a loved one. The Committee is also responsible for helping families plan the Funeral Liturgy. Once a year, the Bereavement Committee sponsors a Memorial Mass to honor all those parishioners whose Funeral Masses were celebrated in our church during the past year.
The Care Committee is committed to working to meet the needs of the elderly and sick in our church community. Every effort will be made to make these people feel that they are a part of our caring parish community, which of course, they are. The committee plans a Healing Mass and Anointing of the Sick Mass yearly, sends a gift to homebound parishioners during the holidays, and most of all prays for all the homebound and sick of the parish.
The Women’s Group is a social group which gets together several times throughout the year. The group holds many social activities and fundraising opportunities throughout the year.
The Men’s League is a group which meets on the first Tuesday of each month and when a needs arise. We get together to share friendships, a meal, provide a helping hand to the parish. This group is responsible for the construction of the Accessory Building in our parking lot and for maintaining our church facility. This group is also instrumental in setting up and breaking down the tents and other equipment for our annual carnival.
Social Action & Service Committee
The Social Action & Service Committee is responsible for identifying the needs in both our Parish Community and in the Wallingford Community.

Some of the activities the committee takes on are the “Souper” Bowl for caring collection, Rice Bowl collection, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & Easter food baskets for families in need, the Christmas Giving Tree program for families in need, and maintaining the parish’s food pantry which helps many families each week with food.
