Put Out Into The Deep

Jesus challenges each of us with the same words He challenged Simon Peter: “Put out into the deep”.  In each of our lives He calls us to trust more, take a leap, and to live without fear.  Over the next year you are invited to identify ways you can respond to this call from our Lord and grow in your relationship with Him, while building up our parish and serving others.  This page will provide you with some highlighted opportunities, big and small, to do just that.  Do not be afraid.  Put out into the deep.

Children's Mass Kits

Have you noticed the new children's Mass kits hanging in the gathering space? If you have young children, try taking a bag with you into church. Inside each bag is a rosary, a couple of books and crayons they can use to color their children's bulletin or coloring page. Check them out, and thanks for returning the bags to the hooks after Mass!

Do you have a friend who no longer practices the Catholic faith?

Invite that friend to dinner! The next session of Alpha will begin on September 8 at 6:00 PM in room 2/3 at St. Max! Alpha is a series of 11 sessions exploring the Christian faith.  Each session includes food, a short video that is designed to spark a thought-provoking conversation, and group discussion. There is no pressure, no follow up and no charge.   Since 1990, Alpha has been experienced by 29 million people of many Christian denominations from 169 countries in 112 languages. It is fully endorsed by the Catholic Church as a great starting place for many people interested in the faith. Learn more here.
