Spiritual Growth

"The glory of God is man fully alive."

Spiritualgrowth

God has invited us to share in His love and when we do we live truly and deeply. When we seek Jesus we discover ourselves. 2,000 years ago Jesus Christ called men and women to follow Him and change the world. Pope Francis renews that call to all Catholics to follow Jesus and change the world.

We offer many ways to help you in your faith journey. Through the sacraments, prayer, and intellectual formation our parish helps guide souls to Christ, their beginning and end. Each individual should strive to grow in faith day by day.

We invite you to go deeper in your faith and explore the rich and beautiful Catholic faith. We offer many opportunities to grow in faith. The internet is also a great way to learn things about the Catholic faith.
