Parish Walking Group Starts Up Wednesday, May 17

The Parish Walking Group is ready to get back into action, walking through the neighborhood surrounding the parish, sharing faith stories, sorrows, joys—and even a few jokes and recipes. We begin each walk by meeting in the narthex at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Refurbishment Details: Join Together This Summer!

Open your HEART to lend a helping HAND this summer as we prepare for the return to our original church to PRAY, believe and live as disciples. Sign up here today or in the Narthex by writing your name, your Mass availability (date and time) to serve as a greeter, usher or on the clean-up team throughout the summer months. Families are encouraged to sign up together!

Come Join Us as Disciples

  • Summertime Greeter: We will have three entrances so we will need additional friendly faces to greet people as they enter for Mass.
  • Ushers: To guide people to available seats throughout the space.
  • Clean Team: To maintain an orderly space by ensuring missalettes are replaced on seats after Mass.

Women’s Bible Study Begins April 20

Women’s Bible Study: Living with Passion & Purpose
Thursdays ▪ April 20-May 25, 2017
7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. 
Room 109

Sometimes doubt if God really loves you? Searching for purpose? Struggle to measure up to our culture’s definition of beauty? Someone you need to forgive, but don’t know how? Join our women’s Bible study focusing on practical ways to grow in understanding just how crazy God is about each one of us and how to live with passion and purpose.

Living in the Father’s Love is ideal:

  • If you are looking for a short, but powerful Bible study 
  • If you are doubting whether God really loves you
  • If you are wondering how to improve your relationship with God and others
  • If you are searching for purpose
  • If you are not ready for a longer commitment, but still want a study with the power to transform your life

Living in the Father’s Love, a six-week Bible study, is the ideal way to revive and refresh yourself. In this brief but powerful study, we discover just how much God loves us and how the Gospels are deeply relevant to our relationships, not only with God, but also with those we love.
