Lenten Small Groups

Lent – especially during the desert of this pandemic – is a great opportunity to rekindle our search for meaning and to ask important questions about God, ourselves, and our faith.

 

The Search is a multi-part video-based spiritual experience from the producers of the FORMED online resource platform – free for all parishioners. The video productions are visually engaging and invite viewers to explore important life questions.


The Search is not meant just to be watched...and it is certainly not meant to be watched alone. This fall, many of our ongoing parish small groups experienced The Search and highly recommended it for other parishioners.

 

That’s why we are forming new small groups for Lent – both in-person and virtually on Zoom – to watch, discuss, and truly benefit and grow from experiencing The Search. We have set up a variety of days and times from which to choose, OR, you can form your own circle of friends or family group to participate. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to grow in faith.

 

Come and join us on The Search! Visit the Join The Search page here.

Easter Environment Offering

We invite you to make an offering in honor of your loved ones during the Easter season to benefit the environment of the Church. If you wish to participate, a gift may be made in any dollar amount 

  • electronically through online giving or the Parish App
  • by check, mail to parish office or place in the offertory drop slot in the Narthex


When you make your donation, you are invited to make it “in memory of” or “in thanksgiving for” and include this in the online giving “memo” or writing it on the Easter offertory envelope which can be found in the Church Narthex. Please write clearly your intentions on the envelope. These names will be displayed in the bulletin the Sunday after Easter on April 11.


Your remembrance gifts at Easter make it possible for us to enhance the beauty of the Church at this most sacred time of year when we celebrate Christ’s resurrection. The cut-off date is Palm Sunday, March 28. Thank you for supporting the adornment of the Church.
