  • book & gift shop corner

    The latest book from Bishop Robert Barron, Arguing Religion: A Bishop Speaks at Facebook and Google, is based on the talks delivered at the media giants. He explains how to have a rational, respectful, and productive exchange of differing views. He also explains why religion at its best opens up the searching mind and how we all can share better discussions about God.

    Armour of God

    We seem to live in an age of never-ending challenges to our Catholic faith. We also encounter political polarization, not moral leadership. Have you ever wondered how our faith should affect current events? Join our Armour of God discussion group. We will examine what influential Catholic writers, academics, theologians, public figures and saints have to say about contemporary issues. The next meeting is on Wednesday, May 29 at 7:00 p.m. in the Scavi. Our parishioner, Dr. Timothy Lau, psychiatrist and teacher, will discuss Spiritual and Mental Armour — and how they fit together. He looks at a crisis of depression and anxiety; and of empty churches, broken homes and broken hearts. Please click here to view website  To view poster - please click here

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    The celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation during the Easter season has reminded us that the sacraments are at the heart of our Catholic life, forming and sanctifying us. I would like to thank Mary Hall and Marion McGlynn who, again this year, prepared our candidates for Confirmation. Shirley Steller, assisted by her daughter Maria as well as by Pomeline and Josiah Martinoski, receive our gratitude for preparing the nine young parishioners who celebrated  ...
