Connect Coffee Talk: Your Heart - You are  Captivating - In this world of noise and busyness, it is hard for us to find the time to give ourselves a little attention. But it’s important that we do. Please join us for a taste of Walking with Purpose on Friday February 2 at 9:45am in the Upper Room of the Church as we learn more about how precious we are to God and that His love is unconditional. He is captivated by each of us - not because of what we do or what others think of us but simply because we are His precious daughters. No experience necessary, just come as you are for some coffee and a chance to see what WWP is all about! “Above all, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” (Proverbs 4:23) *** Walking with Purpose is a women’s Catholic Bible study held on Fridays at 9:45 a.m. The program aims to bring women to a closer relationship with Christ through the study of sacred scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church.  For more information, please contact Kelly Nelson at kellynelson27@gmail.com.

Sound System Survey

posted Oct 3, 2013, 7:58 AM by Fr. Matthew Baum   [ updated Jan 23, 2015, 12:16 PM by Diane Lapinski ]

As you may be aware, we've had some concerns expressed about our new sound system.  Since the Church, like most spaces, if very different when full than when empty, we need to get more input from you about exactly where and when you may have trouble hearing.  (and of course where it works well).   

So please take two minutes of your time to fill out this survey!

Please note that we made some significant improvements on Tues, Oct 1st, so please treat this survey as "things you hear after Oct 1st"
