UNDER THE FIG TREE –
Your are a disciple! Imgaine you could see the life of Jesus through the eyes of the people who walked on earth with him – Mary, Joseph, friends, disciples, religious leaders, children, those he healed. Now you can experience it! The Chosen is about the life of Jesus. The series does not contradict scripture, but instead puts life around it so that we viewers can imagine, “What was life like with Jesus?” There will be two opportunites to participate every Wednesday, noon to 12:30 p.m. and 6 to 6:30 p.m. A 30-minute time of prayer, reflection, and faith sharing. Parish Center entrance will anounce the meeting room. A study guide with scripture, questions, etc…, is available for each session. Both sessions are the same. No commitment, just come when you can, come when you need a prayer, come to pray, come to share, come to take your faith to a new level, bring a friend.

JOIN US FOR DAILY PRAYER!
When the Pandemic struck and the church was closed, we began a prayer experience using Zoom. We chat, begin with intercessory prayer, read and reflect on the Psalm of the day, and close with prayer. Starts every day at 8 AM and lasts about 15-20 min. It’s all good. Come and see. Come when it fits your schedule. Come when you need prayers. Come! Use this address with your online device to join us: https://tinyurl.com/SMSPrayAM

Elements of the Catholic Mass is an online video program designed to help you better appreciate the beauty of the Mass.

“Best Dad Ever is the story, made up of a bunch of shorter stories, of how my kids introduced me to God the Father. Each chapter focuses on a lesson I’ve learned about the Father’s love through my own imperfect and broken attempts to love and provide for my kids. It’s not a manual for parenting or a list of my credentials. It’s just example after example of an incredibly undeserving dad experiencing glimpses of God the Father’s perfect love as I try to figure out how to keep my kids alive.”

PODCAST & PDF available.
The God Minute is a small group of priests, nuns and lay people who start their day in prayer. Soft music, sacred scripture and a thoughtful reflection are weaved into a 10 minute guided reflection. Listen with your coffee in the morning, while driving to work or taking the dog for a walk.
See how easy and beautiful prayer can be.
