Come join us and experience God’s Holy Spirit
“Fearless sheds light on what the Christian life can look like for the Catholic who is freed from fear and allows the Holy Spirit to be more active in his or her life. By the sharing of personal experiences, Fearless chronicles what God can do in and through men and women who allow the Spirit of God to lead them. Anyone who is interested in releasing the power of God in their life should make a point of watching Fearless."

-Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR

Can we be Christ like if we do NOT receive Christ????

“The Lord accompanies us in many ways, but none as profound as when we encounter him in the Eucharist. On our journey toward eternal life, Christ nourishes us with his very self. Once, when told by someone that she no longer saw the point of going to daily Mass, the Servant of God, Dorothy Day reflected: “We go eat of this fruit of the tree of life because Jesus told us to. . . . He took upon himself our humanity that we might share in his divinity. We are nourished by his flesh that we may grow to be other Christs. I believe this literally, just as I believe the child is nourished by the milk from his mother’s breast.”

"I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever emets this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world." -John 6:51

Watch:  The Bible Collection - Paul the Apostle. "We are celebrating a feast day, consecrated for us by the blood of the apostles. Let us love their faith, their lives, their labours, their sufferings, their confession of faith, their preaching.” This week we celebrate the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, each of whom spread the Gospel to the nations in the earliest days of the Church. In honor of Paul, the Apostle of the Gentiles, enjoy this film the Bible Collection!

Learn:  Lectio: Peter: Episode 1: Put Out Into the Deep. The character of St. Peter is both inspiring and confounding to many of us. How could a stubborn and impulsive fisherman become the "rock" upon which Jesus would build his Church? Bringing together biblical accounts, historical evidence, Church teaching, and personal insights, Dr. Tim Gray gives a fresh perspective on Simon Peter in this Lectio series.

Listen:  Set All Afire. It is no stretch to say that Peter and Paul set the world afire with the Gospel message. In honor of these apostles, enjoy this one-of-a-kind presentation that includes seven segments covering some of the most important topics in the Church today. Taken from many of our most powerful talks, these segments are sure to inspire you to set all afire for Christ and His Church. https://
