The Good Book Many of us have been exposed to "bits and pieces" of the Bible all our lives but have never really known what it's all about at its core. Join Fr. Earl for a 9-week small group Christian Formation Bible Study, centered around The Good Book: Reading the Bible with Mind and Heart by Peter J. Gomes. Interested? Download Flyer for info and registration.

Great Season of Youth Events! We kick off our Youth Formation season with our Youth Hike, and continue our season with service projects, a cookie party, the much-loved Lock-in, and more. Download our youth calendar

Formation for all ages, including youth, is held Sundays at 10 a.m. Visit our formation page for more information or youth registration forms.
