The Diocese Recreation Association (DRA) has implemented Parent Like A Champion Today training for all of this year’s 4th – 8th grade sports parents which supports parents as the primary educators of their children, especially in their faith.  This is accomplished by providing parents with a sports workshop which teaches them strategies to be champion sports parents in their attitude and behaviors and enables them to positively partner with their children’s coaches.

All parents will need to complete the training before their child can participate in DRA sports programs.

Women’s Bible Study: Never Alone

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It is impossible to walk through life without experiencing the pain and loneliness of betrayal, shame, guilt, loss,judgement or rejection.  It is also impossible to walk through life and not know the joy of being forgiven, loved and showered with mercy.   During this Bible Study and Reflection, we will focus on six women from the New Testament – to hear their stories and to connect them with our story.  We will see how Jesus reaches out to heal and to forgive.       – Sr. Teresa Tuite, OP

Do you have difficulty hearing the readings and sermons on Sundays?
The parish has invested in a hearing amplification system that works with or without a hearing aid!  We have 12 lavaliere receivers available. They are worn around the neck, with a speaker placed over the ear. The device has volume control buttons to adjust to your hearing needs. Sit anywhere in the church with a direct line of sight to the altar… And you will clearly hear priests, deacons and lectors… all at no charge, just return the equipment at the end of Mass. 
Just stop by the Hearing Assist station in the gathering area before Mass. The ushers will help you sign out a device. 
If you have questions you may call Mike Sliclen at 614-519-6972; or Dan Schreibeis at 614-578-2363
