Adult Sessions for Scripture Study and Faith Matters

Each year, the parishioners are given the opportunity to renew and grow in their faith by attending a four-day Parish Mission. A parish mission is a special retreat time directed by a priest skilled in preaching and spiritual direction. Daily Mass and an opportunity to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation are a vital part of the process.
The Welcome Home is the vehicle by which the parish attempts to provide a warm welcome to inactive Catholics desiring to return to the table of the Lord and to active Catholic life as disciples of the Lord.
Once a month the Charismatic Prayer Group joyfully gives praise to God in prayer and song. A Life in The Spirit Seminar is offered every other year. All are invited to come and pray with fellow believers and grow in commitment to Christ and His Church. The Charismatic Prayer Group meets the third Monday of each month at 4 p.m. in FEC 215.
Specialized retreats are available to all members of the parish. Men’s, Women’s, Youth Retreats are conducted throughout the year.
