Stewardship Drive Update

January 2, 2019

“We are Disciples imbued by the Holy Spirit”  Mathew 28:19-20   Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”

 

Our Stewardship of Treasurer is nearing its close. To date, we have collected $788,881.00 in pledges. We are very close! This year’s goal is to fund the budget completely as we still have many areas that are underfunded.  There is still time to turn in your pledges to the Office or drop them in the collection basket.  

 

If you have any questions, please call Maggie Wright, OFS, Director of Accounting and Development at 740.345.8708 extension 204.


Alpha

August 6, 2018

What is Alpha?  Alpha is a course and a seminar, it is a gathering of believers (and non believers) searching for answers; Alpha is an experience and opportunity to answer together some of the most fundamental questions for believers (and non-believers), folks who are strong in their faith and those who are weak, doubting and struggling, and everyone else in-between.  Alpha is an opportunity ask questions and have open, honest discussion in a non-judgmental, welcoming environment. No question is too simple or too deep. 


Pray Novenas

June 15, 2018

Prayer is big. Prayer changes lives and relationships. Prayer unites.  Novenas are a form of worship consisting of special prayers or services on nine successive days. When a novena involves a Saint, the Saint prays with us as they bring the passion for Christ just as they did when they lived their lives for Him. (more…)

ABC: About Being Catholic

August 2, 2016

RCIAABC is an introduction to the Catholic faith for inquirers and those seeking to become Catholic, and a refresher course for Catholic adults who wish to go deeper in their faith.

 

 

  • “I’m married with a couple of great kids; I have a job I enjoy and
    a nice home… but I feel as though something is missing from my
    life.”

     

  • “I was baptized Catholic and even went to a Catholic grade school,
    but I got away from my faith in high school and wasn’t confirmed –
    and I’ve not been back since. But I think I might want to.”

     

  • “I enjoy being involved in activities with other people who have
    direction in their life. I thought I was one of those people, too… but
    lately, I’m wondering if this is all there is.”

     

  • “I attended church with my grandmother as a child, but I haven’t
    participated in any kind of religious activity since then. I’m
    wondering if I can recapture some of that childhood joy.”

 

We all have questions, but few find easy answers. Jesus simply says: “Come, follow me.” We extend this same invitation to you. As you come to know us, you will discover that although Jesus didn’t offer any easy answers, He did give His followers a framework for living and loving the questions. The Catholic Church is a community of believers, who try to live the values He espoused in a world that often regards those values as absurd. Although you might consider the questions you have now your heaviest burden, they actually are your greatest resource! We welcome you and your questions. Contact Lori Mazzone at 345-9874, ext. 222, and ask about the “ABC: About Being Catholic” program; a phone call won’t commit you to the process, but it can give you the information you need to make a personal decision that’s right for you.  

 

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 – 7:00 p.m. in the School Library:  The Coming Kingdom: Heaven, Our Home What theologians call eschatology; a look at the four last things (death, judgment, hell, and heaven), especially the call to live with God forever in heaven.
