 The Search is an in novative video series that tackles the key questions of every human heart. In seven beautifully filmed episodes, Chris Stefanick and experts from multiple fields of science, medicine, psychology, art, and religion examine our place in the larger story of existence.
     Whether you’re a practiced inquirer or a jaded skeptic, The Search will speak to you. You may be reassured by some parts, and challenged by others. Either way, you’ll find a lot here to think about. And when all is said and done, life’s questions demand to be answered.
It starts Wednesday, October 26 at 6:30 pm  in the Parish Center. To learn more  click here.

Journeying Together With Christ

On Friday, September 24th, Bishop da Cunha issued his 4th pastoral letter, Journeying Together: With Jesus on the Path of Faith & Hope.
The Bishop shares “God is calling us to move forward and not stand still. My hope in this pastoral letter is to offer you a vision for how we can do this and how you can join us in moving forward into the future as a Diocese.” The letter focuses on three areas: Invitational Witness, Sacramental Living, and Vocational Pathways with each section offering mission steps – the actions that individuals, parish communities, and diocesan ministries need to take to make the vision a reality over the next 4 years.
Please take this opportunity to review the letter along with the accompanying guidebook at
