Taize Prayer Service

                                           

On September 23rd at 7:30pm, we will gather in the church for a Taize PrayerService, a beautiful prayer experience that combines simple chants, Scripture and periods of silent reflection in a church illuminated by over one hundred candles, led both by Fr. Remo and Jeremy Beck.


The Catholic Faith is not about myths or legends, symbols or literary devices. It is about an encounter so overwhelming that you want to tell the whole world.  It's about an encounter with Jesus Christ. Father Robert Barron's new DVD documentary, CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization, displays the Faith in action and invites you to do the same.  Join Fr Remo, Thursday, September 25th, 7pm, for the first of a 6 part series and discover your unique role in spreading the Gospel!
