Ministries are those that you, as a parishioner, may want to do to get connected to your church. You may not have been part of a ministry before, so you are offering some of your valuable time to serve your parish. These ministries usually do not require lots of time just your commitment and willingness to serve Him.

How to join our Community?

SAfe Haven Online Training

Whether you want to join one of our Ministry, Communities & Organization or Activity group, this training is required for all ministries and SSJ groups.

What is SAfe Heaven Training?


All new employees and volunteers will complete the Safe Haven online training program instead of VIRTUS PGC training. The turnaround time for approval may be approximately two weeks or less.

  • All individuals must complete the training and complete a background check prior to the start of employment and/or volunteer service.

  • The 5-year anniversary date is still in place, individuals who recently attended VIRTUS will not be due to complete refresher trainings until they have met their 5-year anniversary date.

  • As the 5-year anniversary date is met, individuals will need to log into CMGConnect with their previous personal VIRTUS user id and 1234 as the password. Once the individual logs into their CMGConnect account, they will be able to change their password. If they do not remember the user id, they may contact the contacts provided bellow.

SSJ Five Commissions

Anchor 3

All of the Saint Simon and Jude parish ministries, organizations and small communities fall under one of the five commission areas. Each commission area is represented by one or two parishioners and a staff person as part of the Pastoral Council for the church. This group of individuals help Fr. Pat move the priorities toward the mission of the church through communication to their commission group.



The life of a “Christian Steward”
models the life of Jesus, and we commit ourselves to totally following Christ and answering “yes!” To the vocation and talents God has given us. Stewardship
for eternity.
