National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC)
This biannual, three day event gathers teens from across the country and invites them to encounter Christ, experience the universal Church and be empowered for discipleship. Teens and their adult chaperones choose from a selection of the best Catholic speakers of today, spend time in Eucharistic Adoration and attend Mass in a stadium venue. It is a unique chance to celebrate our faith with thousands of others. Contact Melissa Hurst: [email protected].
Parish Community Fundraising
We have three major fundraisers throughout the year: The Spring Cash Raffle, the Annual Tag Sale, and the Christmas Fair. These events provide opportunities to come together as a community while fundraising for the benefit of our parish. The tag sale and the Christmas fair are events that require much advanced planning and an army of volunteers.
Parishioners and the community may “purchase a brick” to help fund the building of our new parish complex, either in their name or in the name of a loved one. A donation of $10.00 each is requested. Contact the parish business office for more information.
