Every Monday September 24 to November 5

Faith is not just a private matter. Register Here!

Register Here!

Acts: The Good News of the Holy Spirit – Every Thursday October 4 to November 8

Location: St. Joseph Parish—The Viking Room; 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

The Acts of the Apostles, better known to us as Acts, is the story of the birth of the church. In Acts, Jesus departs, the Spirit descends, and a dynamic new faith is born. We meet St. Paul and travel with him on his missionary journeys. And we discover that the greatest acts of the apostles are actually a result of the work of the Holy Spirit—the conversions of hearts and lives everywhere. Register Here!
