Second Sunday after Easter (April 14, 2024)

Monthly Potluck Social

Madonna and Child

Our next monthly potluck social will be held after Mass on Sunday, April 28. Please bring a dish to share! Crockpots welcome! A good rule of thumb is to bring twice as much food as is typically required to feed your own family.




Confraternity of St. Mary of the Angels

On Saturday, April 20, the first meeting will be held of the Confraternity of St. Mary of the Angels.

The Confraternity is modeled in part on St. Maximilian Kolbe’s Militia of the Immaculata. Learn about Marian Consecration, traditional Franciscan spirituality, and St. Maximilian’s program for conquering every heart for the Kingdom of Christ through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The meeting is open to all (no commitment needed), including members of other third orders or confraternities.
