Community Ministries

The heart and soul of St. Susanna lies in our community ministries. These vibrant ministries engage parishioners to partake not only in social events, but service to others as well. The community ministries have a home for all stages of life from family, youth, young adults to boomers and beyond.

Caregiver Support

Caregiver Support Group normally meets the 4th Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm in the St. Catherine Room (located in the Undercroft of the Church building.)

Whether you or someone one you know provide any level of care for someone at  home, or in a long-term residence, down the block or miles away, you are a caregiver. Attending support groups can help during the difficult times that occur for a caregiver. It helps to know that you are not the only one having this experience. You will benefit from the helpful tips and information that are shared by others in the group when it comes time for you to make decisions. If you would like more information on this group, please contact Sharon Kipfer at 513-509-3278.
