Well… it has begun. Our long awaited Centennial renovation of the Church.
Last Monday we closed the church for renovations and for the next few months, we’ll be holding weekend Masses in the Parish Hall, and daily Masses in the Parish Center Chapel. We’ll do our best to create an atmosphere of prayer and good worship in the Parish Hall, and hopefully we’ll be back in our newly beautified Church by Easter time.
Know someone who wants to become a Catholic? Are you a Catholic but never was confirmed?
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the program for people who, baptized or not, want to become Catholics. It is also for those who may have been baptized Catholic but never received their other sacraments.
We'll be starting a weekly program for people in these situations beginning in September and ending at Easter with full initiation into the Church.
For more information and to register, contact Francine Rueda at email@example.com.
St. Lawrence Life Teen thanks all those who made our weekend at Steubenville East possible, whether through your generosity of treasure or prayer.

SCRIPTURE STUDY IS TRULY AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST!
As we enjoy the summer months it is a good time to think about what we have done to develop a closer relationship with our Lord, Jesus. Our personal Faith is firstly based on the belief in the person of Jesus Christ and how we interact with Him. It follows then that we believe in the Church He founded with the Apostles. Our Scripture Study Programs are designed to help us know Christ by learning and understanding God’s WORD and applying it to our personal lives. We invite you to think about this and consider joining us in our weekly sessions as we study and pray together.
