Monthly Gatherings

This year, we’ll spend seven months exploring the seven sacraments of our Catholic faith. We’ll do this as a parish family – people of all ages learning together! Once every month, we’ll gather in the hall to focus on a single sacrament and how it reveals God’s great love for us. We’ll begin with the Eucharist, our ultimate encounter, and we’ll make connections in the months that follow between other sacraments and the Eucharist.

Program Details

  • Monthly gatherings will be held from 9 to 10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
  • Learners of all ages are welcomed! Our Catholic faith calls us to be lifelong learners!
  • Each event is free of charge, but parishioners are encouraged to use the registration form (just fill it out once and you’re good-to-go). You can even register at the events.
  • If you can only make one or some of the gatherings, that’s fine… we’ll see you when we see you!
