Dear Ave Maria Parishioners,

As a Parish Community, we stand for those in need! Knowing that the needs are many, we would like to have a coordinated response to effectively maximize our efforts to help those impacted by the devastating Hurricane Ian. We are grateful to the Ave Maria Knights of Columbus and the Columbiettes who have agreed to lead Ave Maria Parish Hurricane Ian Relief efforts in partnership with Catholic Charities.

For more information regarding opportunities for volunteer work, please contact John Lanham, Grand Knight of Ave Maria Knights of Columbus, at or Okkie VanWyk, President of Ave Maria Columbiettes, at

Yours in Christ,

Fr. David M. Vidal, Pastor
