ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering. We have a food pantry with both food pick-ups and deliveries available. We can write vouchers that can be redeemed at the SVdP store on Washington Avenue in downtown Lansing. Vouchers could be used for furniture, clothing, and household goods, as well as other items. We can also help with eviction problems, shut-off notices, and certain other items. Follow the link above for more information on volunteering or for help.


KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS

Welcome to the Knights of Columbus Msgr. John A Gabriel's Council #11099 at the Church of the Resurrection. We pride ourselves on being a Catholic men's organization that is involved in parish activities and works of goodwill at Church of the Resurrection and in the immediate Lansing area. Our presence is noted in various meal functions, the annual parish festival, altar duties, ushering, funeral necessities, and encouragement to those in need. We are a brotherhood of like-believers that worship together. While we stand ready to assist any way we can, we know that our fellow brothers in Christ can be counted on for any help we may need. This source of confidence strengthens our individual efforts and lends itself to the greater good. Learn more about our organization here: http://kofc11099.org. For more information, please contact GK–S.K. Russ Pate at (517) 231-1746 or [email protected]org.


ALTAR SOCIETY

The purpose of the Altar Society at the Church of the Resurrection is to raise funds to provide for the needs of the altar and promote fellowship among the women of the parish. The Altar Society supplies the candles, incense, communion bread, fresh flowers, plants, and decorations for the altar, and launders the sacred wash, altar cloths, and altar server robes. The Altar Society also hosts various activities, including fundraisers and social events. Any women in the parish may join. For more information or if you are interested in joining, please contact Altar Society President, Marcia Pate, at [email protected]


ST. JOSEPH THE WORKER GUILD

The St. Joseph the Worker Guild at the Church of the Resurrection is an opportunity for men and women to voluntarily offer their skills and talents to do a variety of small jobs around the parish. On a weekly basis we pick up trash on the parish grounds, straighten and reorganize the books and handouts in the church pews, tidy the vestibules, and replenish the vigil candles under the statues. Seasonally we care for the flower beds on the parish grounds. We meet on Tuesdays at 9:00am in the Parish Hall conference room. Come once or come often. For more information, please contact Cindi Currie at (517) 485-5886 or [email protected]


HOMEBOUND MINISTRY

*Homebound ministry is currently suspended due to the COVID crisis*
"I was sick and you visited me..." The Homebound Ministry at the Church of the Resurrection exists to ensure that our sick and homebound parishioners are included in the Sacramental life of the Church. Specially-trained Eucharistic Ministers take Holy Communion to the sick upon request. If you have a homebound member of your family who would like to receive Holy Communion on a regular basis, please contact the parish office. If you would like to become involved, either as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion bringing the Holy Sacrament to the homebound, or simply as a visitor, please contact the parish office.
