Helen Bryant, Chairperson

3M CLUB - 
Joe Carter (Joe.carter@gmail.com)

This club, for mature members (usually 50+), enjoys social activities and participates in many Stewardship opportunities. Members meet the second Sunday of each month after the 11:00 a.m. Mass for a potluck meal and business meeting. We also eat out as a group the first Monday of each month and hold an annual Christmas party as well. Trips are offered that may be cultural, educational or just plain FUN!

CHURCH CLEANERS 
Duncan Murley (murlynn6@aol.com)

Church cleaners work within a group to perform general cleaning in the church. They are scheduled a few times throughout the year. Simple tasks include vacuuming, dusting, windexing, etc. You can choose to be paired with a friend or work with another committee member.

DONUT MINISTRY 
Joe Venezia (jvenezia@mganda.com)

Fellowship and friendship abound as you and your family set up/clean up donuts and coffee after the 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Masses on Sunday in the Family Life Room. This is the perfect opportunity for your family, including children, to participate in Stewardship.

FISH FRY 
Michele Sileo (triblesileo@gmail.com)  
Bruce Mooser (brucemooser@yahoo.com)

Fish Fries are held every Friday during Lent (except Good Friday). Help is needed in the kitchen, dining room, carryout and especially clean up! It takes 90+ volunteers every week to make a successful community Fish Fry. We need new volunteers, as well as our seasoned volunteers to ensure our Fish Fry continues to grow annually. Groups are welcome to work together. The Fish Fry is a great way to meet others from St. Michael and represent our parish. Please remember every volunteer started out as a first-time volunteer. Please join our fun, dynamic, loving group as we come together to celebrate Lent and continue our Fish Fry tradition. A Sign-Up Genius will be posted starting in January, if you prefer not to sign up electronically, please contact Michele or Bruce directly to advise. We look forward to seeing you.

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS 
Jerry Harp 502-475-7985 (j42k46@gmail.com) 
Gene Block 502-259-8829

The Knights of Columbus have been in existence for 135 years from the formation of a group of Catholic men and Fr. Michael McGivney in New Haven, CT to a Catholic Fraternal Organization of some 2,000,000 members world-wide today. Our St. Michael Council was formed in July, 2012 with 30 members and has grown to 90 members. We work as a "bank of brothers" to live out our Catholic faith and more fully support charities in our community and our state. Some of the programs we support are the seminarians, Right To Life, victims of natural disasters, those individuals with intellectual or physical disabilities, and members of our parish to name a few.  

LANDSCAPING            
Paul & Diane Spahr (dspahr58@gmail.com)

Come join us as we get down and dirty the first Saturday of the month! The fun starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends around 11:00 a.m. (weather permitting). The only requirement is that you are able to push and pull (a wheelbarrow and weeds). Our workout includes trimming down and shaping up (the shrubs of course)! Hope you’ll want to join us!

The Men’s Fellowship Club is a casual organization focusing on camaraderie and service within the parish. Meeting on a monthly basis, the group organizes several annual social fundraising opportunities such as a Golf Scramble and a Chili Supper.

NEW MEMBER REGISTRATION 
JoJo and Robin Johnson (jojojohnson@bellsouth.net)

Persons wanting to register as members of St. Michael attend one of the new member registrations (usually the 3rd Sunday of every other month). Committee members facilitate the meetings and create the welcoming St. Michael atmosphere. Committee members also follow up with new registrants after the registration.

PARISH COUNCIL 
Stephen Keller (skeller@sbmkylaw.com)

The Parish Council is a consultative body to the pastor. It has a blend of at-large members, ex-officio members and various chairpersons of what are called Standing Committees. Its core purpose is to facilitate cooperation between the pastor, pastoral associate, administrative staff and parishioners to define and carry out the parish’s mission, which is connected to the mission of the universal Church and that of Jesus. It meets on the fourth Monday of each month during the school year. Serving on the council is a wonderful stewardship opportunity. For more information, please contact Stephen Keller who is the council’s chairperson.

PARISH PICNIC 
Kristina Fehr (kfehr@stmichaellouisville.org)
Jackie Utley (Jackie.Utley@us.icapenergy.com)
Bill Moad (billmoad@bellsouth.net)

The Summer Picnic is a fun-filled family event that requires many volunteers to be successful. Booth Captains work closely with the picnic committee to coordinate volunteers to work shifts during the summer picnic. Captains also assist in the setup and takedown of picnic booths including wheels, prizes, and money. Captains begin filling booth shifts in May, a picnic is held in July. Picnic volunteers are needed to fill shifts of various booths during the picnic. They oversee booth games and distribute prizes. Volunteers are needed to fill 3 hours shifts during Friday and Saturday evenings of the picnic.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT 
No chairperson, please contact Parish Life Chair, Helen Bryant

The Research and Development Committee is activated as needed to meet and plan for the future growth of the parish. Activities include reviewing and planning the layout of our campus, developing building plans for new and existing facilities and overseeing construction of approved projects. Anyone in the parish can join R&D, but a background in construction, engineering, architecture or a related field may be helpful. Meetings are held as needed.

SCOUTS

Cub Scouts
Tom Harrison (harrisont555@gmail.com)

Cub Scout Pack 765 is a division of the Boy Scouts Of America for boys in grades 1-5. It is an adult led organization that instills the foundation of BSA skills and ideals. Cub Scouts typically meet twice a month as Dens and monthly as a Pack. They enjoy outdoor and educational activities year round. The Pack is always looking for volunteers of Time, Talent
and even Treasure to offset the costs to provide the program.

Boy Scouts of America
Joe Venezia (jvenezia@mganda.com)

Troop 765 began its charter in April 1998 and since then we have striven to provide an environment that allows boys to become well-rounded individuals, exceptional citizens and men of honor and character. By following the aims of scouting that consist of character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness, we feel that our scout will be better prepared to meet the challenges they will face in today’s world. By living by the Scout Oath and Scout Law, we embrace a set of ideals and standards that are outwardly displayed in the form of scout spirit.

Because Scouts is a youth program, there is significant training and background vetting on adults. We certainly appreciate the stewardship of Time and Talent. Treasure is great for offsetting the costs of camping, outdoor equipment, supplies and event fees. 

Girl Scouts
Dodi Hance (1000dodi@gmail.com)

Please contact me if you have a girl interested in being in girl scouts and or of you will be a leader or someone to help with a troop.

SECURITY 
Mike Halbleib (hobby1364@hotmail.com)

The Security Committee serves to evaluate operating procedures with respect to security and provides recommendations to improve the overall safety and security for the parish. Members coordinate staffing for parish events and meet on a quarterly basis unless special event planning requires additional coordination. Due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter of this committee, members should have a background in a related law enforcement or emergency response field.

WOMEN’S CLUB 
Diane Spahr (Dspahr58@gmail.com)

We provide spiritual, educational, and social opportunities for women of all ages. Members help support the parish with stewardship and fundraising events. Some of our members maintain clean linens for the church. We also help provide the yearly 8th grade scholarships at St. Michael’s School. Our club donates health and beauty items and food to needy families and the Jefferson Area Ministries. We invite you to join us for various social activities throughout the year and wonderful food and fellowship at our meetings. The meetings are the third Monday of the month from September to May at 6:30 pm in the Parish Community Room.
