"Thomas Merton" presesnted by Fr. Jeff Godecker on Thursday, October 26, 2017, from 10:00 am - 11:00 am in the Multipurpose room and again from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm in Matthew Mark conference rooms. Thomas Merton's greatest contribution was his extra ordinary ability to link prayer, action, and contemplation to everyday life. His insights are timeless, speaking to all generations.
 
November 30, 2017, from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, in Matthew Mark conference rooms, Monica Woodsworth will present, "The Hard Role of Caring for Those We Love". What is needed before, during, and after deteriorating health? Changes in health and independence can't always be predicted; learning of resources and how to support both caregivers and those receiving care can help to avoid a caregiving crisis.

Resource Library

The Resource library is located off the narthex, on the south side of the church. The library provides books, periodicals, audio/visual tapes and other materials for the entire parish. There are many children’s books, along with Mass totes that can be borrowed during Mass. If you would like to assist in the care of the library, contact Carol Devine. You can also view a few samples of books in our Resource Library.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

RCIA is a beautiful, spiritual process where we invite those interested in becoming Catholic to learn about our faith. Starting September 5th, we will begin RCIA that will meet on Tuesday evenings, from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm, in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John conference rooms on the southside of the church. Adults have the opportunity to learn about Catholicism, reflect on scripture, and deepen ones prayer life. If one chooses to become Catholic, reception into the Church typically occurs during the Easter Vigil. If you feel that God is calling you to inquire about Catholicism, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 317-257-1085.
