                               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.

This Program is very important as we move forward with the mission and vision of St. Benedict Church. We, as a parish family, have changed so many lives in our community as we have served God's people. In order to continue our mission and ministries, we encourage all parishioners to spend time in prayer and discussion with your family reflecting on the needs of the parish and your current giving level.   We look forward to seeing all of our parishioners at Mass, especially during our special Commitment Weekend on September 30 .

If you have any questions regarding the Grace Filled Living, Prayer Filled Giving Program, please feel free to contact the parish office 812-232-8421.

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.
