Thursday Night Streams

A virtual weekly speaker series where we tackle a wide range of topics such as social justice issues, being known and loved by God, Church teaching on human sexuality, and everything in-between. Please join us live Thursdays @ 7:00 PM  on our YouTube channel and stay until the end of the talk for the opportunity to ask our speakers any questions you may have. You can also find more information on our Facebook event or Instagram.

 

Join us this Thursday, October 29 as our speaker Jordan Burke discusses Hebrews 12:4 which says “In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.” In this talk we will go into exactly how and what that means with practical tips and tricks to overcome habitual sin, especially porn, using neurology, psychology, and most importantly, the teaching and traditions of the Church and its Saints.

Jordan Burke is a loving father, former cop, prodigal son, and a soldier for Christ.


Works of Mercy
Diaper Drive

The Works of Mercy team invites students to practice both corporal and spiritual works of mercy, creating opportunities to encounter Christ in each other and in the true treasures of the Church: the poorest of the poor, physically and spiritually.

"Clothe the Naked"

Help the Works Of Mercy team celebrate the end of Respect Life month as they come together to collect donations of diapers for pregnant mothers unable to clothe their newborn.

There will be a box near the front office of the Chapel to drop off your donations from this upcoming Friday (10/30) to next Friday (11/6). Please donate during the hours of the Front Office's availability (10AM-4PM daily).

 

Can’t come to the chapel, but still want to help? Click on THIS LINK to head to our Amazon Donation List and have a box of diapers sent right to us without leaving your home!
