Ministries in Action

QAS defines a ministry as one or more baptized persons engaged in acts of service on behalf of and in communion with the Church. Ministries at QAS rely on parishioner service to reach out to those within the parish, those in need in the surrounding area, around the world and those serviced by local community organizations.


Peace & Social Justice Commission

The Peace and Social Justice Commission promotes and defends the dignity of each human person locally, nationally and internationally. It collaborates with other commissions and organizations, such as Catholic Charities, Catholic Relief Services, Catholic Medical Mission Board, and Heifer International in implementing programs which include works of charity and addressing systemic issues such as poverty, homelessness, hunger and violence.


Parish Life Commission

The mission of the Parish Life Commission is to offer generous hospitality to our parishioners and the community. We work to fulfill our mission by sponsoring coffee and donuts after the Sunday Masses, hosting a reception for our grade school and high school graduates, assisting with the St. Joseph's table, and volunteering for the Parish's ministry at the Arbors nursing facility. Our commission's motto is "All are welcome in this place!"


Education & Formation Commission

The Education and Formation Commission includes ongoing faith education and formation for all ages. Membership is open to anyone in the parish. The commission chair is the Director of Religious Education. Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month.


Spirituality & Worship Commission

The mission and purpose of the Spirituality and Worship Commission is the development of liturgical and devotional celebrations that will call the entire community to ‘full, conscious, and active participation” (CSL n. 14) in the heart of the liturgy: the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ.


Parish Stewardship Commission

The Role of the Parish Stewardship Commission

An active, praying Stewardship Commission is absolutely critical to a parish for the ongoing education and commitment of parishioners to the stewardship of time, talent and treasure.

Spiritual Direction

What is spiritual direction?

Spiritual Direction is the opportunity to sit with a trusted companion and share your experience of God’s presence in your life. “It is help given by one Christian to another which enables that person to pay attention to God’s personal communication to him or her, to respond to this communicating God, to grow in intimacy with this God, and to live out the consequences of the relationship.” (William Barry, SJ and William J Connolly, SJ, The Practice of Spiritual Direction)

Divorce and Beyond


Divorce and Beyond is a faith-based recovery program for divorced Catholics and other people of faith.  The workshop consists of 10 weekly sessions of approximately 1.5 to 2 hours each. Our mission is to help participants move through the emotions of their loss to acceptance, healing and forgiveness.  We hope divorced Catholics and others will feel welcomed and supported by their faith community and will remain active in the spiritual and sacramental of the Church.
