Ministries

Catholic Study Group

The Wednesday Bible study is more of a Scripture and Tradition study group.  We are studying St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians and the writings of Catholic thinkers that have helped shape our understanding of Catholic Theology and life. Please join us on Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. in the rectory conference room. All you need to bring is a Bible. 

 Bible Study Group

 You are cordially invited to participate in a Bible Study, Tuesday evenings in the home of Charlie Wills, at 7:00 p.m., Bring your Bible to the session.

 

 The Chalice Program

The Chalice Program consists of taking home a handmade ceramic chalice after the weekend Mass. The Chalice is in a quilted bag with handles. There are printed prayers for the week in the bag. All the prayers are for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Sign up and take the chalice home for a week, bringing it back the following Saturday or Sunday with prayers. Your prayers for vocations are needed!
