    Teen 24-Hour Food Fast
    Over these two days, our teens will experience a 24-hour fast from food. Fasting is when we voluntarily (the Bible doesn't command it) choose to refrain from eating food for the purpose of seeking God with more intensity. We are reminded that each soul HUNGERS for the love of the Lord. Teens can find more information about this food fast by clicking HERE.

    March 30-31
    Our parish will take The Catholic Relief Services second collection this weekend.
