Spring Bible Study  - The Acts of the Apostles

The Acts of the Apostles provides rich insight into the working of God through the Holy Spirit to establish churches in cities large and small. We will see how Peter, Paul and others interacted with a sometimes hostile environment. It is this same Holy Spirit who breathes in us today.

We will be using the study guide Acts in the “N. T. Wright for Everyone Bible Study Guides” series (date 2010). 

                     Parish E-Letter
We have begun publishing out E-Letter to our parish members. If you have completed your census forms or have been receiving our email newsletters in the past, you will be on our list. It hopefully will be sort of a mini-bulletin to keep you abreast of what's going on in the parish. Look for it in you new e-mails today.

                    Give On-Line

The Rosary Altar Society Mission

With devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, we are committed to praying the Rosary for world peace and the spiritual benefit of all peoples.  

As Rosarians, we have a special privilege of ministering to the care of the Altar, preparing linens and assisting with decorations for holidays and special events.  We also conduct fundraisers and participate in other activities as needed for the benefit of the Church.

The Rosary Altar Society offers a deeper connection to the church for all and provides a forum to meet, discuss and participate in current events at our Church.
