  • Christmas Bracelets are Coming!!


    They're simple, but a profound testimony.

    They're inexpensive, but rich in meaning.

    They're unique, but they bind us together.

    Be at Mass on November 22-23 to learn more about our Christmas Bracelet project.

  • Advent Awakenings

    Advent Awakenings.pngWe’ve all seen the signs and bumper stickers that crop up in December: “Keep Christ in Christmas,” “Jesus is the Reason for the Season.” These messages remind us that the commercial frenzy that precedes Christmas often smothers the religious significance of the holiday. This year, step out of the whirlwind with Advent Awakenings: Take the Time, a faith-sharing program from RENEW International. Consider being part of a small group that will gather in four weekly sessions and sharing what we really are waiting for during the Advent season – the coming of the Savior. Interested?
