Sundays 12 - 2:30pm @ Parish Center - Sharing Christ
Our faith journey can’t stop with encountering the life-changing love of Jesus Christ and growing as His disciples. We are called to share the Good News with others! Evangelization must become the everyday lifestyle for Christians if the Church is to become a vibrant evangelical witness in our culture once again. Sharing Christ equips Catholics with the practical skills to proclaim the Gospel, draw others into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and invite them to become his disciples as members of the Church.

Fridays, 6am @ Parish Center - Kapaun's Men
How does a man live a fulfilling and impactful life? Kapaun's Men have found a great example in the life of Father Emil Kapaun, who left a lasting impact on the world around him and is still inspiring men today by living a life of virtue. The Kapaun's Men Virtue Series is a 8-part video series and workbook that dives into the virtues as exemplified by Father Kapaun. Men from many walks of life help us to understand what virtue can look like in men's lives today and encourage us to be able to put it into practice. In addition, the video features two of the soldiers who were Prisoners of War with Father Kapaun in the North Korean Prison Camp. See the video below for a trailer of this life-changing series.
