Welcome to St Benedict Parish and Faith Community!


For over 149 years we have been a vibrant and welcoming part of Roman Catholic life in the western part of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. 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.

A Prayer for My Parish

Grace, Gratitude, Generosity


Gracious and loving God,  in this year of grace, we ask you to send your Holy Spirit upon our parish to fill us with love.

Make us instruments of your love to everyone that we encounter at home, at work, in our neighborhoods, and in our parish community.

Work through us so that we can bring your love to those who are searching for you.

Help us to grow in gratitude so that we can recognize and thank you for all the good things you have given us.

Instill in us a deep sense of generosity so that we are willing to share our gifts, our talents, our time, and our financial resources.

Deepen our desire to follow your will and to do all things for your honor and glory. We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.
