What We Offer
We seek to provide learning opportunities through bible studies, prayer groups, faith sharing groups, our annual parish mission, our RCIA program (see 'Become a Catholic' in the Ministry tab), our weekly Wednesday Soup Suppers during Lent, and various other occasions throughout the year. On this page, we will post upcoming adult faith education events in our parish!
