The Publicity Committee covers events that take place in St. Anselm Parish. Members take photos and write up brief articles regarding each event. Photos and articles are displayed on our Church Bulletin Board in the Main Vestibule and are published online. As of June 2013, the Committee has maintained a photo history of Parish events which are displayed at Sunday Socials and online. The committee also reaches out to local papers to make the Bay Ridge Community aware of events occurring in our vibrant Parish.
If you are interested in joining the Publicity Committee please contact either Robert Kassenbrock or Eileen Loughlin at (718) 238-2900.
Respect for Life
The Respect Life Committee at St. Anselm Parish was begun in September 2011. The primary goal of the Committee is to create and sustain respect for all human life at every stage of existence and in every situation, from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death.
Over the past several years the Committee has sponsored a number of parish activities to help achieve this goal:
- Benedictions and Masses for Life
- Spiritual Adoption of a Pre-born Baby
- Co-sponsoring with the Holy Name Society a Drive of Baby Clothes and Toys to help families in need
- Holding a Collection for Newborns, Infants, and Toddlers of Diapers, Wipes, Formula, Blankets, and Baby Lotion
- Encouraging prayers and Pilgrimages to Washington D.C. for the Unborn
The Respect Life Committee meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm.
Please call 718-680-3755 for location. We encourage new members to join us.
Ushers (Ministry of Hospitality)
Recognizing the importance of communication between St. Anselm and our parishioners, and heeding to the call of parishioners at the PPC’s Parish Assembly, we are proud to have a current new website. We encourage usage of this site as a way to access information and to keep in touch.
The St. Anselm Workforce Ministry is a committee of the St. Anselm Parish Pastoral Planning Council. The Workforce Ministry, which began in 2008, is comprised of parish volunteers. The mission of the Workforce Ministry is to provide parishioners, the members of the Bay Ridge Community and beyond with the knowledge and tools necessary for finding employment, changing careers or starting their own business.
Our event partners have included the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow, The Brooklyn Economic Development Corporation and the Small Business Development Center.
Past Workforce Ministry events covered topics such as job sourcing information, resume development, and effective interviewing strategies for finding employment or changing careers. Additionally, other events to start a business included panel discussions with small business owners and writing a business plan.
The coordinator is Mary Gelormino.
