Mass attendance and Daily Prayer

Attending Mass as a family to listen to God's Word and to receive Jesus Christ in the Eucharist is an essential part of Catholic Living.

Attending Mass allows Catholics to fullfill the obligation of the third commandment and provides spiritual strength and nourishment for daily living.

At every Mass the bread and the wine are consecreated into the body and the blood of Jesus Christ. This is HIS Real Presence on the altar.

We will receive Christ in the Eucharist so we can be more like Jesus. 

Creating a life of prayer at home at morning, evening, the rosary, or prayers at meal time create a solid foundation for spirituality.

We invite and encourage all of our families to committ to weekend Mass and daily prayer at home.

Our program is here to support families and to encourage them to live Our Faith.
