Pray with Us
Adult Faith Formation Planning Team
The team focuses on creating opportunities for the adults of our parish and their guests to enrich their faith. We strive to bring souls closer to Christ by offering devotional and catechetical programs and to provide opportunities for people to meet and support each other in the challenges of life. This could be through participation in one of regular prayer or faith sharing groups, a seasonal bible study or other special educational events. If you are interested in helping us to plan and staff events, we welcome you and look forward to working with you.
Holy Spirit Prayer Group
The group meets on Monday evening from 7:00-8:15 pm. in the Chapel to give praise, thanks, honor, and love to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior (Matthew 18:19-20). Intercessory prayer (James 5:14,16) begins shortly after 8:00 PM. A prayer meeting is not a discussion club, a therapy session, or a time for counseling. We gather to give our full attention to Jesus through the help of the Holy Spirit (who will teach us). All are welcome to attend and pray as you feel comfortable, exercising the Gifts of the Holy Spirit (see 1 Corinthians 12:4-11).
Divine Will Prayer Group
The Divine Will Prayer Group meets each Thursday morning in the Coffee Run Room, from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. We are a group of men and women who meet to pray, to study and to strive to live the holy will of God through the writings of Luisa Piccarreta. Jesus himself told her "Your mission is great because we are not talking about one’s own personal holiness but embracing everything and everyone and about preparing the kingdom of my will for all human generations."
Men's Cornerstone Retreat
This annual event is open to men of the parish and their guests. Cornerstone brings together a group of ordinary laymen supporting each other in their endeavor to live the Gospel amid the challenges that the modern world presents. It is a down-to-earth, inspiring encounter in which men socialize, laugh, learn and grow...and eat well! Cornerstone is a two-day program scheduled on the Friday and Saturday before the Superbowl.

Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary is the largest, lay apostolic organization in the world, which began in Ireland in 1921. Its purpose is to sanctify its members and all those who come in contact, through the fullness of the Church. Active members do weekly works of evangelization assigned to them by the Spiritual Director or Pastor. Auxiliary members are the praying members for Mother Mary’s intentions in the world. Active members meet weekly for 1-½ hours. Auxiliary members pray daily Legion prayers with the Rosary. Any fully practicing Catholic, at least 8 years old is invited to Active or Auxiliary membership.

Discussion Group (Note New Time)
Men of the parish and their guests are invited to join us each Wednesday morning in the St. John Room from 7:00-8:00 a.m. to read and prayerfully reflect on Scripture, usually the upcoming Sunday's Gospel, and how it applies to our everyday lives. A lectio divina format is used. On occasions we also add reading and discussing a short passage of a book that relates to our faith life.

And everyone is welcome to join us for the 6:30 am Mass if schedules allow.
