Deacon Jim's book, Praying the Gospel Through the Rosary, is available for all to enjoy and pray upon.

Adoration Chapel.png

Our Perpetual Adoration Chapel is in need of new Adorers. We are blessed that our five local parishes support and
provide adorers, but we still have a few hours with only one adorer. Please pray about being called to
this sacrificial but immensely rewarding ministry!

quiet time with Jesus.
