“I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”

~John 10:10

God has an AWESOME plan for your life!

He wants you to be radically happy.  He created you for a mission.  Your true happiness lies when you fulfill that mission.

Our apostolate exists to help YOU encounter Christ and grow in His image.

Yes!  You can have a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Our Lord.  Discover the heroic mission God created you for.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to bring Christ into the lives of Catholics, outside of Sunday Mass, through special events centered around the Holy Eucharist, Sacred Scripture, and the Rosary.  Bringing Catholics together as a Parish Family.
