Upcoming Events and News

Share Your Glory Story

Fr. Dave invited each of us to reflect upon the ways in which God has worked, and continues to work, in our lives to draw us closer to Him and increase our faith.  We all have a Glory Story of how God has transformed us.  Please take a few minutes over the next week to reflect on your own story and write it down using the template we've provided.  You will find the template, as well as a link to an electronic version of the Ultimate Relationship booklet, on this page of our site.

Special Invitation to Eucharistic Adoration

Thank you for answering the invitation to join our Adoration Family.  Over 55 new Adorers signed-up over the last two weeks to share an hour with another scheduled Adorer.  We still have open slots available, and you can select the day and time that works best with your schedule.  Please visit the Adoration page of our website to learn more.  The Lord is waiting for you, and your life will be enriched beyond measure.
