LITURGICAL MINISTRY SIGN-UPS
We are currently signing up liturgical ministers for the upcoming church year. Bellarmine recently started using Ministry Scheduler Pro to coordinate our liturgical ministries schedules. This new software will make it easier to schedule ministers, send out reminders, find subs, and make immediate changes to the schedules throughout the year. To sign up to be a minister (lector, communion distributor, greeter, etc.), please go to the Bellarmine website page bellarminechapel.org/ministry-schedules.html and click on the appropriate link. If you have questions or concerns, please send an email to email@example.com (please include your Mass time in the email).
Bellarmine is committed to being as inclusive a parish as we can be. If you would like to participate in a liturgical ministry but have held back in the past because you might need special accommodations, please sign up now and let us know so we can work with you.
In an effort to provide better seating arrangements for parishioners with mobility issues, we have removed some of the chairs in the front row of the Chapel. The new open space is intended for the use of those with wheelchairs or other assistive devices that are difficult to fit into our standard pews. We are always looking for ways to make the chapel more accessible and we hope that this change will help.
INVITATION TO INQUIRY
Our RCIA ministry has produced this new video inviting people to “take the first step” and come to our Inquiry sessions. Several recent “neophytes” and “newly confirmed” tell the stories of what moved them to come and why they continued. Only 8 minutes long, it can now be accessed here on our parish website or on YouTube . Please take a few minutes to watch it, then consider to whom you could send the link, or refer them to our website. Help us spread this invitation!

Bellarmine Chapel is a Catholic faith community that strives to live out the teaching and example of Jesus Christ in the spiritual tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola. We seek to be a parish where lives are transformed by the new and creative ways of the Holy Spirit. Nourished at the table of the Eucharist, we are sent on mission to make disciples, serve those in need, work for justice, and welcome all with love.
