Let your differences make you irresistible to each other. Who knew the differences between you and your spouse could be so delicious? For men, compartmentalizing—moving from waffle square to waffle square—and dealing with one problem or purpose at a time is the key to maintaining sanity. For women, every aspect of life is connected by common emotional “noodles.” Like a plate of spaghetti, each thought intersects with every other thought, all flowing together. Once you understand how your spouse processes feelings and thoughts, you’re on your way to a happy and healthy relationship! Join us as we discover new perspectives to help us communicate effectively and avoid unnecessary frustration, identify new romance ideas to spice up our marriage when sparks aren’t flying, and apply our combined insights into learning how to parent as a team rather than competing.   Find all the basic ingredients for loving, working, and winning together.

RCIA – Becoming Catholic

Our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program for 2017 – 2018 has begun but it is not too late for you to join us this year! The RCIA program is designed for individuals interested in learning more about the Catholic faith and becoming Catholic. It is also for individuals who were baptized Catholic, but for some reason, did not receive all of the sacraments as a child.

RCIA meetings are held every Wednesday night from 7:00 – 9:00 PM at church. We will welcome new members at the Easter Vigil on March 31, 2018.
