We pray your Lent is off to a good start as we begin to prepare for the Resurrection of Christ our Lord.
Take a look at a few of the resources we have to help you on your journey! We look forward to seeing you at Fr. Steven’s talk on Gift of Self, or perhaps at the upcoming soccer league.

The Gift of Self
As young adults we might wonder how we can give ourselves to another or to God in our vocation. Maybe we wonder when that time will come for us, or we want to do better in our current vocation. Perhaps, there are parts of our story that we are working through in the process. In this talk, Father Steven Borello will help us to examine our hearts to see how we can become free to love fully. Open to young adults, ages 18-39.

Join us Wednesday, March 23, 2022 at 7 PM at the Blanchette Center.
