Wednesday Evening Bible Study

This group looks into the readings for the upcoming Sunday.  Being prepared by a study of the readings is a great way to increase your active participation in the Holy Mass.  Join Mike Hill in the gathering area of the church from 6-7 pm.  Since this time coincides with CCD, parents are encouraged to attend and share the Good News with fellow parishioners and then evangelize their families.  Any effort to get to know Jesus better will be blessed.
