Community

We have many ministries for men, women, and youth: study and prayer groups, and fellowship activities. During this time of social distancing, our groups will not gather publicly. Our men’s and women’s groups are holding weekly Zoom meetings, which we invite you to join. Our regular schedules will safely resume as social distancing guidelines are lifted.

Wednesday Book Study at 5 PM on Zoom
Join Fr. Ben each Wednesday as he leads this group study, focusing on the book, “The Little Flowers of St. Francis of Assisi”, with the preface by Madeleine L’Engle. The book is about St. Francis of Assisi’s ecstatic embrace of a life of poverty revolutionized Christianity even as it transformed the ethics of the West. St. Francis’s followers preserve his legend and those of his first disciples, combining stories of miracles with convincing portraits of men who were no less human for having been touched by God. You can purchase the book online. “Join Now” (below) to receive the meeting link and information. Your contact information will always remain confidential.
