    Ever wonder what your purpose is, or how to find a path to discover the greatest potential for your life? There is a mind/heart connection that can be uncovered within the "Books" of the Bible and the stories told within each book. This “living” lens reveals human relationships from multiple perspectives that occurred over thousands of years ago but hold true in the world today. The New Testament exposes Jesus; why would a man who died in the prime of his life - naked, penniless, shamed, virtually alone, and in great agony become the focal point of history? Let's go beyond the distractions of the world and look at suggestions and opportunities to grow into discovering your true purpose and self-potential.

    There's no need to pre-register as walk-ins are always welcome, but it's a great way to reserve your seat!

  • Teen Ministry Message from Staff

    Our teen (youth) ministry goals are to respond to the needs of our youth, to promote their spiritual growth and to encourage them to share their God given talents with our parish, our community and others they come in contact with. 

    We want our youth to know God really loves them and they are never alone. Pope Francis reminds us, "In the roughest moments, remember God is our Father, God does NOT abandon His children."

    Teens are additionally encouraged to collaborate with others to assist in furthering the cause for Christ!
