At Home Devotions
As we strive to become a parish of intentional disciples who make time for personal and communal prayer, we will be praying with as special devotion each month.
Traditionally the month of January has been dedicated to the Most Holy Name of Jesus. This month we encourage families to consider taking up a regular time to pray the Litany of the Most Holy Name of Jesus.
For those with younger children, consider downloading the coloring pages below and have a conversation with your kids as they complete them:
As we continue through the challenges of capacity and gathering limitations, we want to continue to find ways to be connected to one another and grow spiritually even while we’re physically separated.

An all new group will explore FORMED’s series “Symbolon” on Monday evenings starting on January 25, 2021! Have you ever wondered about certain teachings of the Catholic Church? Then this study is for you! The Symbolon study provides a systematic presentation of the “big picture” of the Catholic Faith in light of the Creed. This is similar to the Catholicism 101 series run in years past and is perfect for those looking to dive deeper into Catholic teaching or for those thinking about joining the Catholic Church.

Weekend Masses will continue for the foreseeable future with attendance limitations, yet many of our expenses occur whether or not we have large attendance at Mass (payroll, insurance, utilities, and the like). When you continue your offertory, whether through online giving or sending your contribution in the mail, it allows us to fulfill our mandate to make disciples of all nations.

Even as Church and many business reopen we still need help checking in on those parish neighbors who many need some extra help and connection. We’re looking for people who are willing to:
- run errands (pick up grocery orders, pharmacy orders, etc…)
- make phone calls to check in on people once or twice a week
- send notes or cards
We’ve gathered together a number of resources to help you face these uncertain days.
