Today, Lumen Christi is a vibrant unified parish community with over 1100 households.
New members can join the second weekend of every month at new parishioner registration. Coffee and donuts is offered at the same time for all parishioners.
The Liturgy is at the core of our faith. Parishioners are encouraged to participate in ministry areas as greeters, ushers, servers, lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, and Children’s Liturgy of the Word leaders. There is an adult choir, a bell choir, a funeral choir and a junior choir. We offer a Eucharistic Adoration Chapel.
Lumen Christi has many educational opportunities for children through senior adults. We offer Faith Formation classes and Children’s Liturgy of the Word for children. Adult offerings include theology speakers, retreats, and senior wellness programs. Strong sacramental prep programs are available for children and adults.
An active Social Justice group hosts speakers, meets with local legislators, and sponsors a book club to promote justice issues and educate the parish in the Gospel message of justice and charity in service to our parish, neighborhood and world community. Outreach programs include Loaves and Fishes, Families Moving Forward, a monthly food shelf collection and Christmas gifts for those in need.
Lumen Christi’s leadership structure offers six ministry councils, Discipleship & Parish Life, Faith Formation, Finance, Pastoral Care & Social Justice, School and Worship who report to the Parish Council. They all meet the third Tuesday of every month with a communal meal followed by their meetings.
Community building events like coffee and donuts, volunteer appreciation, new parishioner welcome brunch, bridge, our senior PrimeTimers group and the fall parish/school Block Party offer opportunities to get to know each other.
Our parish school is Highland Catholic, with over 400 students from pre-school through 8th grade. Highland Catholic School strives to be a Christ-centered community fostering spiritual growth, academic excellence and commitment to justice in the name of Jesus.
Come to Lumen Christi and check us out. As you get to know the wonderful people, we hope you will be convinced that Lumen Christi is the place you can call “my parish.”
