Make Time for Christ: a time of listening to God’s word, remembering what Christ has done, and re-energizing our true selves!

As Christians we are disciples of Jesus and apostles of the gospel, yet our daily lives are so full that we sometimes forget ‘who we are and whose we are’. Make Time for Christ will take place October 6-9. Fr George Knab, O.M.I. will present the Mission.

Please make plans to be with us at 6 p.m. October 6-9, and…family and friends are welcome!
