ReUnion + CommUnion
Over the past 2+ years, we have been a strange church – we are together and yet not quite together because of the measures due to the pandemic. While we make do as best as we could given the situation, our body ‘remembers’ what it is like to be connected with each other. These memories caused yearning in us for union and connection even though we may not express it explicitly. The time is NOW to reconnect and to re-Union with one another this feast day!
Come and experience connection with each other again face to face! Mark your calendar to ReUnion and CommUnion with one another as we are the Body of Christ!

Trained Special Needs Catechists
Pope Francis has called the Catholic Church to be a welcoming Church. As we welcome our students into our religious education classes, it’s important that we see each one as a child of God with special talents and special gifts; remember that you are seeing the face of Jesus. Teaching religious education is a splendid opportunity to share your love of God and the Catholic Church with your students.
