We have many activities and ministries within our Church community that may be of interest to you and/or your family:


The St Benedict Music Ministry invites you to join the choir at one of the three weekend Masses.

Anyone wishing to participate as a cantor can step up to the choir section and join in to make beautiful noise.

Lessons are available for any instruments and voice at a very reasonable cost.

Familia Guadalupana

This ministry meets monthly in room 114 on the second Sunday of each month after the 10 AM Mass.  This organization shares the Catholic faith and Mexican culture and heritage with an emphasis in honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe to the community.  



This ministry visits those of our parish that are homebound and offers them the Eucharist.  

Families wishing to place someone on the homebound visit list, please call the office at (210) 648-0123.

Our homebound ministry does not always mean visiting and bring the Eucharist, it can mean sending a card or baking a treat.
