Why Catholic?...This fall, all parishioners will be participating in a program designed to strengthen our relationship with Jesus Christ as well as give us a deeper understanding of our Catholic faith.


This nationwide program, called “Why Catholic?” will have parishes in 34 dioceses in the United States participating. The program is designed to teach us about the richness of our Catholic faith, to show each parishioner how to spread the Good News of Jesus, how to live our faith with enthusiasm and invite others to learn about the Good News of Jesus and the good news of our Catholic faith. Keep watching for more info.
