    Invitation - Men's Prayer Breakfast

    We would like to welcome men to our prayer breakfast, which has been meeting for many years. We meet at a local restaurant weekly from 8:30-9:30. Please contact Leo for meeting location. We drink our coffee, start by reading the scriptures for Sunday, share our thoughts on the meaning of the scripture readings, and end with short prayers. The "leading" rotates each week. We welcome other men to join.

    Living the Scriptures

    Reflect on the upcoming Sunday readings together.
    Meet fellow parishioners!
    Share how the Word of God comes alive in your life!

    Our Tuesday morning Bible Study program, which started in September 2021, is presently full. We keep a waiting list for this group, and invite new members as vacancies occur. We also could form a new group if the waiting list gets large enough. We use the very popular “Living Liturgy” study guides to each week’s Sunday Mass readings. Small group, informal atmosphere, friendly, prayerful, relaxed. Take some time out for the Word of God, enrich your understanding of the readings you’ll hear each Sunday at Mass, and explore how to live the meaning of the scriptures in your daily life and in our world.
