married couples in living out their sacramental call to be
a domestic church in their family. We offer retreats for the
couple, family retreats, and small groups (circles) in which
couples receive accountability, support and faith formation
from other couples and a parish priest. Please click on this

Faith & Families
Faith and Families is an opportunity for the parish family to
come together, share a meal and celerbrate our faith in inter-
generational or age-specific sessions. We meet quarterly
at 6pm (after the 5pm mass) for dinner, a faith lesson
geared toward specific age groups (from infants through adults),
and returning together for dessert to share our experiences with each other. All
family sizes and shapes are welcome, as we are all part of our parish family.
Our next Faith & Families will be Sunday, November 27: Journeying through Advent with Mary & Joseph.
Children's Church is a ministry to our three to six year olds
during the 10:30am mass on Sunday mornings. Children are
called and blessed by the priest at the mass and then sent
with teachers to learn about the gospel in age appropriate ways. Parents may
pick up their children after mass from the multi-purpose room. Since this is a
drop-in ministry, no registration is necessary - just bring your children with
you to mass on Sunday morning! Children's Church allows for parents to be
able to be ministered to through mass as they are able to enter into the
sacrament without toddlers underfoot!
Single Parent Families
we strive to encourage and assist single parents as your
needs arise. We want all parents to know that this your
spiritual home and we are their family. We are here to help,
whether your need is spiritual or phyiscal. Since each situation
is different, needs are different and are addressed individually, from assistance with
healing from divorce, healing as a widow or widower, assistance through the annull-
ment process, parenting advice, etc. Please click on this link to be added to the single
parent email list or to express your specific need and someone will be in touch!

is given out weekly at any mass and families are asked to place it on

hear the call and respond! Please click on this link to sign your family up

Natural Family Planning is a scientific, natural and moral method
of family planning that can help married couples either achieve or
postpone pregnancy. NFP methods are based on the observations
of the naturally occuring signs and symptoms of the fertile and
infertile phases of a woman's cycle. This is not your parents rythym
method! Since the methods of NFP respect the love-giving (unitive) and life-giving (procreative)
nature of the conjugal act, the support God's design for married love! Click on the words for more
