Parish Life

The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.

Bereavement Meeting

Starting in February, Ministry of Consolation now meets every Thursday night, 7:30-8:30 PM, in Fr. Leo’s Office.

30-HOUR FAST

“On Sunday and Monday, February 17-18, a group of teenagers will participate in the annual 30-hour fast in the church hall. They will be seeking sponsors to raise funds, through fasting, for a water well in a remote village in Sierra Leone, West Africa. They will also invite your donations after all masses. Please be generous and supportive of them."

Virtus Training

The next training in English will be Friday, February 15 in Room 5 from 6 pm to 9 pm.
