Updates & Upcoming Events

as of Saturday, 2.24.2024​​​​​​​​

​​

  • During Lent, Fr. Donald Baker will lead a Theology Thursday series in an examination of the Passion Narratives in the four gospels. How is each gospel account different from the other three; what do they tell us about the suffering and death of Jesus; what does that mean for us today? Consider joining us for this Lenten experience beginning on Thursday, February 22 through Thursday, March 21. The event begins at 6:30 in the Parish Center. Please RSVP here!​​

  • Beginning on February 16, and continuing on the Fridays in Lent, we will pray Stations of the Cross in the church following the noon Mass.

  • The next Social Justice Ministry meeting will take place Wednesday, March 6 at 6:30 PM in the parish center. Together with Fr. Baker and Taryn, the group will discuss the memoir Take This Bread by Sara Miles and making connections to upcoming service initiatives. (If you'd like to order/read the book to participate in our discussion, click here!) Reading encouraged, but NOT required! All are welcome.

  • If your child is preparing to celebrate First Holy Communion this Spring, the First Communion Family Retreat is on Saturday, March 2, 2:00 - 5:00 PM in the church. This is for families in parish religious education, St. Stephen of Hungary School, and The Caedmon School.

  • Our Annual Parish Retreat Day will be on the morning of Saturday, March 23. All adults are welcome to prepare for Holy Week with this morning of reflection. Our presenter will be Fr. Tony Ciorra, and the theme is “Make Me a Channel of Your Peace.”

  • Our Parish is considering an organized trip for the 2025 Jubilee! The trip will include travel to Rome and Assisi with Collette Tours with an option extension to Padua and Venice. If interested, click here!

Ongoing Announcements​​​​

  • Is God calling you to be a catechist? Volunteers are needed to help to pass on the faith to the next generation of children and teens.
