Drop Your Nets And Follow Jesus!
Join us on Saturday, October 1, from 9am - 12:30pm, in the St. Gerald Fellowship Hall for the Archdiocesan Pastoral Conference!
At the Pastoral Conference, you will learn about our current reality and the challenges we face as a Church. For example, did you know that only 22% of Catholics attend Mass on Sunday? Or that six times as many people are leaving the Church as are joining it? Many of our friends and family members live without the hope and joy of knowing Jesus. This needs to change!
The Catholic community exists to bring people to Jesus. Our hope is that with God's grace, this conference will motivate us all to become missionary disciples.
This Archbishop has invited all parishes to livestream this conference and fill our churches with missionary disciples! Please sign up today!
Fall School of Prayer
New School of Prayer Series for the Fall!
When Jesus calls us to be his disciples, he calls us first and foremost to a relationship with him. Come join us this fall for a three-part series to discover who you are and why God created you. Learn how to hear God’s voice and to know him in a more personal and intimate way.
The School of Prayer will be led by Fr. Mark and held on Thursday evenings, all from 6:30-8pm:
Thursday, September 29 (Fellowship Hall)
Thursday, October 20 (Lakeview chapel)
Light appetizers & dessert will be served. The School of Prayer is highly recommended for those who have taken our Introduction to Discipleship or Alpha courses as a great next step in your faith!

Missionary Discipleship Gatherings!
These gatherings are intended for those who desire to follow God's call to live life as a missionary. As we gather and pray, we also learn, discuss, and practice how to actually reach out to people with the love of Jesus, meeting them where they are at.
Intro to Discipleship or a Missionary Discipleship Retreat is a prerequisite.
