Growth Opportunities for Adults

In addition to the sacraments, we enjoy a variety of opportunities that deepen our experience of and understanding of the Catholic faith. As we grow in our relationship with God, everything else starts to work better - our sense of connection to the parish, our marriages and families, our professional lives... Continuously growing closer to Christ and His Church yields beautiful fruits!

 Women of  Grace

 (and  more!)

 

Women age 18 and older come together for study, fellowship, and prayer. During the fall/winter months we focus on a faith study; in spring/summer we bring in speakers once a month. We welcome newcomers and hope you'll be one of them! Contact Sandy Hornbach for details about current and upcoming programs.

 

Our ministry to women also involves these special events:

  • Women's Retreat: This overnight retreat can make a significant difference in your experience of the Lenten and Easter seasons. We learn from gifted speakers, enjoy meals together, take time for private meditation, and relish time with one another.
  • Advent Women's Dinner: Good food, good company, good speaker, good time... What more could anyone want? While the ladies are nurtured by an evening designed to focus minds and hearts on the season of Advent, the men of the parish graciously serve a catered dinner. Women of any parish or faith are welcome to join us for this fun, relaxing evening.

 Coffee Talk

 

On Sundays from 10 - 11 AM (September-May) we meet in the KAC Meeting Rooms to discuss a variety of faith topics over coffee and danish. Recently we have been taking an in-depth look at the 10 Commandments and, wow, have our eyes been opened by a fuller understanding!

We hope you will join us soon! No registration is necessary. Learn more by contacting Deacon Gerry Flamm.

 Devotions

 

Devotions are spiritual practices that help individuals incorporate their faith into their day-to-day lives. They may seem simple, but they can be quite powerful! Sincerely engage in a devotion for a month or two and see what a difference it can make.

 Moms

 in Prayer

 

Prayer makes a difference! Come together with other mothers, grandmothers, aunts and caretakers to prayerfully share concerns about the children in your life and in the parish family! These women devote an hour to an hour and a half on Friday morning in prayers of praise, thanksgiving, reflection, and petition. Contact Gail Hankins if you'd like to join the ladies in bringing cares and concerns to our Heavenly Father.

 Parish  Library

 

If you enter the main doors of the church, the library is in a room off to the left. The shelves are labeled to help you find books for particular topics. To borrow a book, simply write your name on the book card that you'll find in the back of the book and put the card in the metal box you'll see on the shelf. When you're finished, you can leave the book in the basket on the small table; we'll take care of re-shelving it for you.

A selection of audio and visual tapes as well as some additional display books are available in the lobby area of the church. Tell me more.

 Rosary  Groups

 

Monday and Tuesday mornings, around 7:40 AM, our Rosary Group gathers in the Church to say the Rosary together before Mass begins. Come as often as you can to meditate on the Mysteries.

We also have a Monday Night Rosary Group that meets at 7 PM. Come experience this beautiful devotion!

Then he said

to his disciples,

“The harvest is plentiful,

but the laborers

are few; 

therefore ask

the Lord of the harvest

to send out laborers

into his harvest.”

Matthew 9:37-38
