Parish Life Ministry

The Parish Life Ministry at College Church seeks to welcome, connect and foster friendships in the parish community, within parish ministries and beyond our liturgies. One of its goals is to build membership in the parish. It embraces five programs or sub-ministries: the New Membership Ministry, the Gathering Place, Social Events, Bereavement Ministry and Communications.

The Gathering Place, held in the parish’s Xavier Ballroom, is where parishioners meet informally after Sunday morning liturgies, share refreshments, get to know one another and deepen the parish community experience. From time to time, programs of adult faith enrichment are offered. This ministry is reorganizing. If you would like to be part of it, contact Ruth Cochran at or Jeanne Derer fsm at or 314-849-2404.

Under Parish Life Social Events, as resources permit, volunteers plan such things as a picnic or a theme party, at which parish members can gather for fun, friendship and sometimes to raise money for the parish. If you would like to be part of this group contact Armella Geier at or 314-727-4276.

The Bereavement Ministry was established to support SFX members who are suffering the death of a loved one. More details can be found here.  

Higher purpose. Greater good.
