Join us for our ChristLife Program beginning September 19th. The ChristLife Program equips Catholics for the essential work of evangelization so the world might personally encounter Jesus Christ and be transformed into His missionary disciples. 

discovering-christDiscovering Christ ~ A seven-week experience that invites us to hear the Good News and personally encounter Jesus Christ. Discovering Christ is for anyone and everyone, from the baptized in the pews to the unbaptized person who has never entered a church. Discovering Christ helps participants enter into or renew a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, experience the love of God the Father, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as God’s children. It also gives us the relational support necessary to begin living for Christ.


following-christFollowing Christ ~ A seven-week journey that explores and encourages Catholic discipleship. Following Christ helps us to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through His grace and by praying together, teaching, and supporting one another in the basic disciplines and truths practiced by Christians since the early Church.



sharing-christSharing Christ ~ A seven-week mission that trains Catholics to share Jesus Christ with others and invite them to be part of the Church. Sharing Christ focuses on personal evangelization and sharing our relationship with Jesus in our daily encounters with others. Sharing Christ helps to develop an attitude of the heart that moves us to be open to share the Good News we have experienced.

Interested in becoming an Altar Server?

Is it time to become an Altar Server?

Has a small voice been whispering to you about being an Altar Server? That’s one way God calls you –a wee small voice, whispered now and then or a quiet thought that comes occasionally.  Listen to Him.

Come join us.  We meet on the first Tuesday from Sept thru May, 6:30pm-8:00pm for our monthly dinner, social, and new server training in Room 24.  If you have received First Eucharist and are in the Third to Twelfth grade, come see what the Lord is calling you to do.  Bring a parent, a friend, or a sibling and find out if you are ready to serve him.

For more information please contact Sue Allaer or Deacon Ben
