Safe Haven Sunday

Dear Friends, On January 29, 2023 we observed “Safe Haven Sunday.” This is a national initiative of US Bishops meant to draw our attention as a community to the seriousness of the issues of pornography, and to recommit ourselves to take steps to ensure our homes are safe havens for all. In observance of Save Haven Sunday, Bishop Fernandes shared a special message discussing these concerns, and providing encouragement in our efforts to keep our families and children safe from the poison of pornography.

No Greater Love Lenten Video Series

We will be offering a program at our parish this Lent that will help you to experience Christ’s Passion and Death as you never have before. In No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion, we are going to walk step-by-step with Jesus on his journey from his Agony in the Garden to his Crucifixion on Calvary. Along the way, we will unpack the biblical background to these events, the prophecies, and most especially, the ways Jesus is inviting us to walk more closely with him today.   This will be a six-week study. Each session will consist of a 30-minute video, followed by group discussion. Coffee, juice, and light refreshments will be served! We will have two study sessions available to attend: Sundays from 9:45 – 10:45 am (starting Sunday, February 19) or Wednesdays from 10 – 11:30 am (starting Wednesday, March 1).   CLICK HERE to register!
