† Religious Education – Ages 6 thru 13
Classes are held throughout the school year for grades one through eight. Home- schooling is also an option for your child. A materials fee is due upon registration. It is a diocesan requirement that a child must be enrolled for at least two years before reception of a sacrament. See the attached link for more information about our program.
† Scripture Study - Adults
Courses are offered in the Fall, Winter and Summer seasons. Classes are held Monday and Wednesday evenings, and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.
† Lenten Retreat
A six week program is offered during Lenten season combining study, prayer, and faith sharing. The spirituality of a Catholic Saint is the focus of the study.
† The 12 Keys to Spiritual Vitality
Learn how to experience, in a fuller way, the gifts given by the Holy Spirit in our baptism: Peace, Joy, Patience, Kindness and Endurance! As we begin to age - starting at 25 - our culture focuses on our losses as something negative and undesirable - as diminishment's and things to be feared.
† A Week of Guided Prayer
A retreat week is offered within the parish in July. Prayer focuses on the two practices of lectio divina (sacred reading) and the examen - a daily review to see where God is present or absent within our lives. The retreat combines individual and communal prayer with daily meetings with a spiritual director.
