Making an offering of our financial resources is an integral part of what it means to be a Christian. We have a variety ways to make it easy for your to support our church.
News & Events
LEO KLEIN LECTURE
Our second annual Leo Klein Lecture is scheduled for Thursday, September 27, at 7 PM in the Chapel space. Last year we had John O'Malley, SJ speak on what it means to be a post-Vatican II church. This year, we will be blessed to have Joanna Williams, Director of Education and Advocacy at the Kino Border Initiative, with us. Her talk is entitled "Living the Eucharist at the Border" and will weave in elements of the spiritual exercises and her own faith journey. More information to follow!
