                               Imitating Disciples                                                                   We learn to become disciples by shadowing and imitating other disciples. Children learn from their parents, family members and catechists. Those in the initiation process, we often call them seekers, learn from us – their parish community. In the day to day life of the parish, the seekers learn to become disciples.                                                                                                                                              If you are seeking and would like to explore what it means to be a disciples in the Catholic Christian tradition, please contact Rita at or call the parish office, 812.232.8421, ext. 12.

Grace Filled Living, Prayer Filled Giving

Over the next few weeks, you will be hearing about the upcoming Grace Filled Living, Prayer Filled Giving Program at St. Benedict Church.

Next week you will receive a brochure detailing the Grace Filled Living, Prayer Filled Giving Program our parish will be participating in over the next few weeks. This informative brochure is intended to communicate the financial needs of our parish and why we are having a dedicated focus on our parish offertory. Commitment Sunday for this Program is September 29 and September 30. We encourage all parishioners to spend time in prayer and discussion with your family reflecting on the parish’s needs and your current level of giving. We look forward to seeing all of our parishioners at Mass next weekend for this very important Commitment Sunday. If you have any questions regarding the Grace Filled Living, Prayer Filled Giving Program please feel free to contact the parish office.

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.
