Dr. Paul Ford offers a weekly reflection and study of the upcoming Sunday scriptures so we can better understand the good news message of Jesus Christ and how He is present in our lives.
Until we can meet in person again, he will email a pre-recorded lesson each week.

We gather virtually. We pray virtually. We write.
New members are welcome anytime to our friendly group.
We explore and practice different types of writing and read our work to one another each week. Some days we do “free writing” for ten minutes on a chosen topic.
Other weeks we read our prepared pieces (up to 500 words) on a designated subject. Our comments on one another’s writing are constructive and honor the deep feelings that are expressed.
We share each other resources about writing , and equally the responsibility for the successful working of the group.
Our topics are not overtly “religious,” but give us an opportunity to express the concerns of our souls. Many consider the experience to be healing. We encourage humor and playfulness; we laugh a lot. This is as much a faith sharing group as it is a writing group. We pray together. We take care of one another.
If They Knew Our Names
A poem by Dave Flood
I Was Thinking…
A blog by Theresa Schultz
How frustrating to be home bound and need to cover my face when I go out for essentials. I hate being restricted. Then I talked to a friend living in an Assisted Living home. She has been confined to one room and eating alone for about five months. The TV shared stories about people who lost financial security, some even their homes. I saw pictures of ventilators and families mourning. The whole world is engulfed in hardship and here I am complaining about the least of all problems.
Whoever thought one could be thankful in such overwhelming times. I am.
Third Thursday of the month
Grounded in the gospel and Catholic social teaching, our PAX Christi ministry seeks to model the peace of Christ in our witness to the nonviolence of the cross through prayer, study and action rooted in justice for the common good of all God's children.

A Panel Discussion
“The Catholic community stands with all people who struggle for an end to racism and violence, in our families, in our places of worship, in our communities and in our world. We must continue to build bridges and we must confront racism and violence with a commitment to life, a vision of hope, and a call to action,” Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, President of the U.S. Bishops Conference, June 19, 2015.
With this call to action, we can no longer stay silent or idle to the persistence of racism embedded in our institutions and public policies and how it impacts us personally. It is time we begin the healing process by listening to the experiences of our faith communities of color. May we be present with our compassionate hearts to listen to their voices and truths.
Panelists include: Nirmala Bheemisetty, Martita Martinez-Bravo, and Cynthia Jones-Campbell

SEEDS (Sisters ~ Embracing ~ Enlightening ~ Daughters of Faith) is a monthly evening of spirituality for women to meet in fellowship to share the Word of God and grow in faith.
While the sight of injustice may swell righteous anger within us and fill our eyes with tears, we must be wise in how we respond. Seeds of Faith invites all women to join in a 4-part discussion series as we delve into the USCCB pastoral letter against racism "Open Wide Our Hearts: The Enduring Call to Love." Come and spend time as we read, reflect, pray and discuss how to transform our understanding of life, charity and justice.
Once a year the men of our parish join with other Catholic men from around the diocese for a weekend silent retreat at the Mater Dolorosa Retreat Center in Sierra Madre, materdolorosa.org
We offer a variety of retreat styles to meet the needs of the women and friends of our parish family.
