Who is a Parishioner?
There are many people who come to the rectory asking for a baptism or marriage or to sign a letter saying he or she is a parishioner. When this happens, our parish secretary checks if they are considered registered, and many times, they are not considered registered.
So what makes a person a parishioner?
You are not a parishioner because your parents go here. You are not a parishioner because you went to school here. You are not a parishioner just because you come to Mass here!
Being a parishioner should be an easy process. You simply have to come to the rectory and fill out a registration form. You may download the registration form then bring it to the rectory. You know you are a parishioner when envelopes are sent to you. It’s that easy! No fee; no ID cards are required!
Being a parishioner means that you are committed and invested in this parish. It means that you commit to keeping the parish vibrant, which means investment of your time, talents, and treasures to the parish. The parish would not be the same without our parishioners who make a difference and form the parish.
