Spiritual groups

The renewal and continued education in our faith is a pillar of Catholic teachings.  The groups detailed below focus on the spiritual aspects of growth.  We invite you to explore the varied opportunities to renew your faith, to continue your life-long journey of religious education and to build a stronger community through the power of prayer.

Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary is sanctioned by the Church, under the powerful influence of the Blessed Mother, members serve the Church through 2 hours of apostolic works per week.  The association of these men and women with each other and their interaction with parishioners through apostolic works brings its members closer to the Mystical Body of Christ.  Such works increase the spirituality of the members and the parish community being served.
