Making Jesus Christ known in our community and the world beyond is an essential part of who we are at St. Aidan’s. Below is a listing of the many ministries we participate in and support.

 

 

 

  • Flower Guild Ministry—Prepares vases each week from the altar flowers, which are then taken to people who are sick, suffering a loss, or celebrating an anniversary.
  • Card Ministry—Sends out approximately 50 cards each month to people in the hospital, recovering at home, homebound, expecting a child, suffering the loss of a loved one, or just needing help and support. This ministry also celebrates life’s happy occasions, remembering birthdays and anniversaries.
  • Transportation Ministry—Arranges for parishioners to be taken to and from church, as well as to and from doctor’s appointments. This ministry has been instrumental in keeping the connection to St. Aidan’s alive for members residing in assisted living facilities.
  • Caregivers—Provides meals to people in need.
  • Guild of the Christ Child—Supports families throughout their spiritual and personal journey of having children. Gives support with meals when a newborn arrives.  The Guild also presents a child’s Bible and a framed prayer to newly baptized infants and young children.
  • Greeters and Newcomers Ministries—The Greeters Ministry is designed to help visitors recognize how important they are to the life of the church. Greeters extend God’s love and welcome those who enter St. Aidan’s doors each Sunday.  They provide a vital role in making visitors and newcomers feel at home.  Greeters are the FIRST contact as people enter the church, so they prepare themselves with prayer as our foundation, asking to be a blessing to those they greet.  Twice a year, St. Aidan’s recognizes the Newcomers who have decided to become official members of St. Aidan’s.  The new members are recognized on New Member Recognition Sunday during the service. The committee also schedules 2-3 Newcomer’s events during the year.
  • Joseph of Arimathea—Assists in arranging and conducting funerals and funeral receptions.
  • Prayer Warriors and Prayer Chain—Serve a nourishing and strengthening role in the lives of the people for whom we offer prayers
  • Visiting Eucharistic Ministers—Bring the Eucharist to homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and to any parishioner who is unable to come to church. There is also a monthly celebration of the Eucharist at St. George’s in Roswell and a weekly celebration at Cottonwood Estates in Alpharetta.
