It is all about relationship- that union and communion we feel with God, extended and experienced in community. In this space, I humbly offer up some of the insights I have discovered and lessons learned through this incredible ministry!
Yes Virginia, Catholics CAN do bible Study! Last winter, I facilitated a bible study program by Ascension Press that gave an overview of the entire story of salvation history entitled Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible. Challenging and engaging, this study garnered a community of 85 men and women many of whom had never attempted bible study before. What an incredible combination of video, small group discussion and individual study! Tune in this Fall when we tackle the Gospel of Matthew… over 24 weeks!

Children’s Liturgy of the Word
The aim of Children’s Liturgy is to engage and lead the children in an age appropriate worship experience.

Sometimes catechesis involves simply being present . So often, I am the one learning from their journey! You can read more about this incredibly blessed ministry at INVITED TO: WORK 6 & AND REST ONE..IT’S A FAMILY THING!
