Parish Mission 2023

"Come to the Mountains: An Invitation to Encounter God"

with Friar Johnpaul Cafiero, OFM

We are pleased to welcome back Fr. Johnpaul Cafiero for a four-day parish mission. Friar Johnpaul will focus our Mission by preaching at all weekend masses on March 11th and March 12th. Over three sessions in his engaging style, he'll lead us in reflections on scriptural encounters with God on the Holy Mountains. We'll reflect on these biblical mountain encounters and their message for us, Jesus' disciples, today.

On Sunday March 12th, we'll gather in Church at 4 PM.
On Monday March 13th and Tuesday March 14th, we'll gather in Church at 7 PM.*
Each mission Service will include prayer, a reflective presentation, and special music.
The services will last about an hour and a half, and all mission sessions will be livestreamed on our Facebook page
* Everyone is welcome to stay after the mission on Monday and Tuesday for hospitality.
Why come? Come because we all need to renew ourselves as we continue our Lenten journey to Easter.
Who may come? Youth through Senior Adults - anyone interested. Friends from other churches are welcome. No registration is needed.
What's the Cost? The primary cost is your time commitment. There is no registration fee. A freewill offering will be taken for Franciscan Ministries.
