Exodus 90 informational meetings will be held this coming week on both Tuesday, December 13 at 6:30 pm and Thursday, December 15 at 7:15 pm in the Gathering Area. If you are interested, please visit our website or attend one of these important meetings to join us for Exodus Lent!
Tens of thousands of men have made an Exodus because they're ready to live different. They want to grow closer to God, to their spouse, their children, and their friends. And to become a more selfless man, living for others and not for himself.
We have partnered with Hallow this Advent to provide every parishioner FREE access to all of Hallow’s prayer content - including the Advent #Pray25 Challenge: Journey through Salvation History featuring the cast of ‘The Chosen’.

We continue to offer our dynamic faith-sharing experiences of Communio Groups. These groups take small-group sharing, reflection and prayer to the next level. They allow for each member to walk the journey of faith with spiritual friends while deepening one’s relationship with Jesus. If you are interested or need more info, contact Phil Lewandowski by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone, 440-653-5638.

Encountering the God Who Loves You
“All Christians are invited to a ‘renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ.’ Christ calls all people to himself in his Body, the Church, through the workings of the Holy Spirit, so that we can enter into a personal relationship with God the Father.”
Living as Missionary Disciples: Page 31
Parish School of Religion (PSR)
Sunday School is our Parish School of Religion for public school students in grades 1-8. It includes sacramental preparation for students in 2nd and 8th grades, who are studying the sacraments of initiation they receive in those years, First Communion and Confirmation.
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is for people interested in joining the Catholic Church or for Catholics who want to strengthen their understanding
of their faith and the teachings of the church. Team members greet candidates, lead small group discussions, and lead prayer sessions.
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Children is part of RCIA. Team members are needed to instruct children in grades 3-9 in small groups about God's love, Catholic beliefs, prayer and church membership. RCIC is scheduled as needed.
