Living Your Faith

Do you wish to deepen your prayer life?

The same Jesus who taught his disciples how to pray is there to help you as well, and what better place to contemplate Jesus — the highest form of prayer — than in His presence?

Become a Man After God’s Own Heart

Would You Battle for your Bride?
The kickoff for a new year of “That Man is You” men’s  group starts September 16th at 7:45 AM in Father Curran Hall. We had an amazing year last year learning to be a better husband and father, and we invite all adult men to be a part of it. The great thing about this program is that if you missed last year, you can still jump into the program without a problem.

This year’s theme is “The Battle Over the Bride”, and we will discover Church’s vision of love and marriage. We will understand the beauty of love that lies hidden in the mundane details of everyday life and learn stories from around the globe of couples who have lived the mystery of love to its very end. We would love to have you join our small group. Hope to see you starting September 16th, and you can join us any  Sunday at 7:45 AM in Fr. Curran Hall. Free light breakfast and great fellowship included!
