SAVE THE DATE: The next “Between the Masses” event is March 18 at 9:00 am. Holy “Holy Week”!!!

The Triduum—the three days from the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper to the end of Easter Sunday—marks the most important time of the Church year. Unfortunately, most families will have school, work and even sporting events. How can we teach the meaning and importance of the Triduum? Come on Sunday, the 18th to find out!!!

The Teens are hungry – spiritually AND physically! Please consider supporting our Youth Group by providing a meal on week. We typically have 8-12 in attendance and they like pretty much everything!

Sign up to bring a meal one Sunday.
