Welcome to JAVA…

What is JAVA? JAVA is a place for parents to gather in community to share a cup of coffee, relax, and make new friends while their children are busy learning during religious education time.

Why JAVA? JAVA comes from the idea that “because of Jesus, we are … Joyfully Alive, Victorious and Able”!

When is JAVA? If there is religious education scheduled for your child, then you can find JAVA!

Where is JAVA? JAVA can be found in the back lobby of the PLC. Feel free to drop off your children in their appropriate classrooms at 9:10 and take a stroll to the back lobby through the St Therese courtyard  (located through the glass doors in the main PLC lobby).

*** Childcare will be available for your little ones.

The Eucharistic Revival starts NOW

We all need healing in our lives, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength. Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith—His body, blood, soul and divinity in the Holy Eucharist.

Eucharistic Revival/Avivamiento Eucarístico

         

*The 2022 Bishop’s Annual Appeal has begun in our parish and throughout our diocese.

We join our Catholic brothers and sisters throughout our state to provide support for several critical ministries of our church.  Every year, the Bishop’s Annual Appeal challenges us to look outside our parish boundaries and support the universal causes of our church.

This coming week, you will receive information regarding the Appeal in the mail.

Thank you for your consideration and support of these important ministries that support our diocese and our local parish.
