Bible Study

Here we learn about the Bible and the impact it can have on our lives collectively and individually. The target audience and participants are those who wish to deepen their faith and knowledge of the Bible. Our Bible Study allows participants to learn and also join in discussions concerning the Bible. It allows us to achieve a broader understanding of the Word.

Choir

Showered by the blessings of the Holy Spirit, Saint Cyprian Choir is committed to enhancing the congregational experience of the Mass through gifts of music to our parish, our extended parish community, and through musical evangelization.


Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist

The Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist are sent forth by Christ to offer the Body of Christ to Catholics in our faith community. We minister to the body, mind, and spirit through service to nursing homes and home-bound parishioners, as well as assisting the Priest with service at mass.


Lectors

It is the purpose of the Lectors to proclaim not any word, but the Word of God, skillfully and competently. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we the Lectors of Saint Cyprian Church accept the responsibility to participate, to make frequent self-evaluations, and to improve our ability to communicate the Word of God clearly to the congregation. Out ministry calls for a deepening relationship with the Word of God.


Legion of Mary

Our purpose is to promote the Glory of God through the holiness of our members, developed by prayer and active cooperation in Mary’s and the Church’s work. With Christ as our cornerstone, we participate in the life of the parish through visitation of families, the sick, both in their homes and in hospitals, and through collaboration in every apostolic ministry sponsored by the parish.
