We are individuals and families who take great joy in the beauty of our worship space and great pride in the quality of our liturgies, outreach, religious education and stewardship. Enjoy your visit here and please contact one of us if you need additional information.

Welcome Rachel!  This Sunday, October 21 at the 11:00 Mass our community welcomes Rachel Elizabeth Tetidrick into the full communion of the Catholic Church. We rejoice that after making a profession of faith and receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, Rachel joins us at the Table of the Lord. May the Eucharist nourish and strengthen Rachel as she continues the mission of Christ for the life of the world! If you or someone you know feels called to the Table of the Eucharist, please contact Rita at or call the parish office, 812.232.8421, ext 12.


Are there questions about our Catholic faith you would like to have answered??????   

Now is the time to ask them!   Please join us on Sunday, October 28, after the 11:00 Liturgy.  Faith Formation is hosting a salad lunch and a Question/Answer Session with Fr. Martin, in Hellmann Hall.   There is a box in the back of church to put your questions in.  Hope you can join us!

Download Our Parish App!

At St. Benedict we are pursuing new opportunities to foster a stronger parish life and better engage the New Evangelization. As a part of these efforts we are happy to announce that St. Benedict now has it's own app for Apple and Android phones.

Our app will allow us to send you useful and important messages throughout the week regarding our parish life and events, and allow you to reply to messages or RSVP for events.

There will be no need for parishioners with smart phones to remember to silence their phones before Mass. The app will send you a reminder to silence your phone 20 minutes before the Mass you select. Many more great features will be a help to all of us, such as, daily Mass readings, Catholic news, prayers and prayer reminders, quick access to online tithing, Confession reminders, and our weekly bulletin.

So, be sure to download the app  today by visiting or searching for myparish on your phone's app store, and stay connected with us all week long.
