  • Building for the Future For the past few years we have had to run the parish on a very lean budget. But because of your generosity and increased offertory, we now have—and will have— the opportunity to do more: with religious education for children and adults, not deferring maintenance, other parish improvements, etc. As you know, we will be building a new rectory in the near future, so thank you for your continued support!

  • Lay Formation Institute The laity (that means you!) are at the front lines of the Church, bringing the Gospel to the world. Unsure of how to do this? Interested in connecting your faith to the places you work or socialize?
    The diocese is starting a new round of its Lay Formation Institute to help you do just that. It is designed to ground you in a solid spiritual life, help you appreciate the essential role the layperson plays in the world, and give you the tools to live out your faith.
