Beginning Thursday, October 6 at 7:00 P.M. we will offer our next class: LECTIO: EVANGELIZATION
It will be a Ten-Week course. Each class will last until 8:30 P.M. The instructor on the video is Dr. Mary Healy
From the Augustine Institute. The cost of the class will be $30.00. Learn evangelization from the men and women who changed the world for Christ.

What is our mission as Catholics? We are living in a time of abandonment of Christian faith on a scale that has never before been seen in history. The time is past for business as usual. God has a role for you! We are called to go out and to serve others to bring healing and to bring them into the light of the truth of Christ. We are born for a time such as this!
