  • Thanks to the folks who helped us get the tent up last night before Vespers. Things are coming together for the Open House this Saturday!


  • In anticipation of the Open House this weekend, we need to raise our large tent on the lawn near the church. Please help us place the tent at 5:45pm today, before Vespers (6:30pm). Christian Education will follow Vespers with Part 2 of St. Innocent's Catechism.
  • Our parish was honored to host noted Christian Apologist J Warner Wallace on October 28, 2014. Detective Wallace, whose online materials can be found at http://coldcasechristianity.com/, shared from his incredible forensic experience to make a compelling case for the truth of the Gospel. Not only is Detective Wallace a fantastic speaker, but he is also a class act, spending much time visiting and explaining one on one, long after the presentation was concluded!
