Opportunities to Learn More about Our Catholic Faith Are for Everyone

We are committed to providing opportunities for every parishioner to grow in his or her understanding of the faith.

Please grab a “Faith Formation Offerings” fall catalog after Mass or in the parish office to see what’s right for you. If you have any questions, call Mary Hart or e-mail dreststephen@earthlink.net
