MOYC is a St Luke ministry that unites mothers with kindergarten age children and younger. Our focus is on faith, friendship, and community services. MOYC has several opportunities for involvement and fun throughout the year. Check out one of our many parties for the children, the new bible study with Stephanie Engleman, make a meal for a family in need or join us for an adult night out with other MOYC members. Membership is voluntary with no required fees.
Member volunteers make and deliver dinners for parish families with newborns or sick children. This is a simple way to give to another mom and it is always appreciated.
Members are always needed for a variety of outside charities which are assisted in conjunction with the larger parish. This year's special MOYC outreach is St. Mary's Child Care Center.
St. Luke MAMAS (Mothers Aspiring to be like Mary And her Son) seeks to help mothers of children young and old – and those women who hope to become mothers – grow in their faith, while also creating a sense of community among like-minded women. The group meets on the first and third Tuesday of the month, from 9:45 to 11, at the nearby home of a parishioner. Mothers share prayer requests and read and discuss the previous Sunday’s Mass readings and homily, while children play under the watchful eye of a childcare provider (nominal fee involved for childcare). No homework, and no commitment – come to every meeting, or come every once in a while. Either way, we’ll be thrilled to see you! Bring your own coffee or morning beverage of choice! For location details, please contact Stephanie at afewbeadsshort.com.
MOYC manages volunteers for the parish nursery, open Sundays for the 9:30 AM Mass September through May when SMRE is in session.
MOYC plans and coordinates the parish Halloween, Christmas, St. Patty's Day, Indy 500 Race Party and various social events for members each year. You are sure to meet many families in the parish by participating in these events.
