Conversion - Our next Teaching Tuesday Series


When you hear the word “Conversion,” what comes to mind?  Catholicism defines “conversion” as a life-long process of turning one’s attention and energy toward an ever-deepening relationship with Christ. Join us as we begin the DVD-based program, Conversion:  Following the Call of Christ, presented by Fr. Robert Barron.

Using six stories from the Bible, Bishop Barron demonstrates how ordinary, sinful people like us are met by Jesus and called to a better life through him.

On Tuesday, January 17th, our parish will begin the Conversion:  Following the Call of Christ program. The series will run three weeks in January (17, 24) and every Tuesday in February all beginning at 7:00 PM. No fee or registration. To find out more information, please contact Elisabeth Cyr at 724-4828 or

My something is sharing my outrage with readers in hopes that we can move each other to face a horrible problem plaguing college-aged women.

Don’t procrastinate on faith, live today, pope says

Christians are called to renew their faithfulness to God every day and not procrastinate when it comes to their own personal conversion, Pope Francis said.

A hardened heart that sets aside “receiving the love of God” for another day may find that it is too late to enjoy the heavenly reward awaiting those whose hearts are strong in the faith, the pope said Jan. 12 in his homily during Mass at the Domus Sanctae Marthae.
