Acts of the Apostles
Starts Tuesday, September 11
The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.
The Acts of the Apostles provides an historic framework for understanding the rest of the New Testament. Paul’s letters in particular come alive in a new way when they are read within the context of the Acts narrative.

Thursday, October 25, 7pm; Mary's Place
Saturday, November 3 through Thursday, November 8. Spend time walking through images starting in the Gathering Space, through the church and to the chapel. As we prayerfully take time to walk through this beautiful set of imagery may we be reminder that we are "one in mind... one in spirit... and one in heart" with all who have been created in the image and likeness of God our creator!
Stop by the church for a special time of walking. Walk with your child(ren) before or after Faith Formation classes, or walk on your own while your child is in class. Come during your lunch hour or come after work. There is no right time, there is no wrong time to come, walk, reflect and connect. "May we become ONE on the journey!"
