Ministries

An important part of what makes this Church and community special is the many ministries we have within the Church - our way to tend to the ones who need us, but also a way to celebrate our Catholic faith.

Since it is mostly parishioners who get involved with those within not only our church community but in the community at-large, this is a great way to get involved!


Couple-to-Couple Ministry: Instructional classes for couples preparing for Christian marriage. The engaged couple meets with a couple from the parish.

Eucharistic Ministry: Parishioners who participate in Liturgy by distributing the Body and Blood of Christ to the faithful, and bringing the Eucharist to the homebound and sick in the hospital.

Hispanic Ministry: Along with meeting the physical needs, we also provide spiritual growth for the Spanish speaking population of Wooster and neighboring towns. We are building community and working to meet the many challenges Hispanic immigrants face every day. More...

Hospital Ministry: Parishioners who visit Catholic patients at the local hospital. Often these parishioners are Eucharistic Ministers and bring Communion to the sick.

Jail Ministry to the Incarcerated: Parishioners who gather on a monthly basis at the county jail to join in a prayer service with local inmates. Some members participate in a letter writing ministry.

Music Ministry: St. Mary’s Music Ministry consists of various groups of motivated musicians who enjoy sharing their musical gifts during the liturgy. If you are interested in joining any of the vocal groups (choirs and ensembles) or play an instrument, please call the church office and leave your name and number or contact us by email.

Youth Ministry: MIC Youth Ministry, a Eucharist-centered Catholic youth ministry, is committed to empowering the youth of our parish to live as disciples of Jesus Christ daily, encouraging the youth to fully participate in the life of the Church, and caring for the total wellbeing of all the teens entrusted to our care.  Aided by the Holy Spirit, we strive to accomplish these commitments by providing vibrant and varied opportunities such as MIC Nights, discipleship groups, retreats, mission trips, social events, etc. for the youth to grow deeper in their relationships with Christ and others. MIC Nights are on Sunday evenings begining after the 5:30pm Mass and ending at 8:30pm. All 9th-12th grade students are welcome to join us for our Sunday evening sessions. MIC Nights run from mid-September to the beginning of May.
