Rosary for the Holy Souls in Purgatory
Join us on Sunday, November 25 at 2:30pm in the Church at 96th and Q to pray the rosary for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. The Catholic Church dedicates the entire month of November to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. During this entire month we pray for the souls of the faithful departed, especially those whom we have known and loved. Our prayers for these souls can help alleviate their sufferings and help them reach heaven more quickly.
St. Gerald Advent Retreat - Saturday, December 1
The Advent and Christmas seasons will soon be upon us. Similar to Lent, the Advent season is a time of interior preparation in joyful anticipation of God's gift of new Life. The message of Advent, "Prepare the Way", is an urgent and ageless message and certainly a message for our times. It is a call to conversion, to discipleship and to preparedness for the coming of Christ who longs to enter more deeply into our hearts.
Please join Fr. Mark in the Fellowship Hall from 9:15 am to 4:00 pm as we take a closer look at our interior life and how we can experience more fully the birthing of God's incarnate love (Jesus) within our hearts each and every day. Please call the office to RSVP or use the button below.

A Pope, the Pill and the Perils of Sexual Chaos
"Unprotected" Movie Screening - December 2nd, 2:00pm, 96th and Q
#Metoo. Sexting pressure. The Hook-up culture. Teenage depression. How did the culture become so toxic for women? And how did one man foresee this all so clearly 50 years ago? The truth regarding our society must be exposed in order to save our families and our youth. From the producer of the acclaimed documentary, Convinced, this powerful new film about Humanae Vitae reveals the devastating effects of 50 years of the sexual revolution, and the counter-cultural movement today that is rising from its ashes. The message from Pope Paul VI has been mocked and strongly rejected but our society has witnessed human sexuality out of control and destroying families. Unprotected features moving stories and inspiring commentary by Christopher West, Jennifer Fulwiler, Janet Smith, Damon Owens, Jason & Crystalina Evert, Sue Ellen Browder, Patrick Coffin, Jennifer Morse, Benjamin Wiker, Carrie Gress, Leila Miller and more.
