Rest in Peace, Monsignor Bill Gahagan

The Chosen
A special thanks to those who stayed after Mass on Jan 22 to watch The Chosen “Shabbat” episode.  There is interest in showing successive Chosen episodes on the avg of twice a month, so this will be under consideration in the near future.  Please share your thoughts with us & watch for an announcement.

“The Chosen is based on the true stories of the gospels of Jesus Christ. Some locations and timelines have been combined or condensed. Backstories and some characters or dialogue have been added. However, all biblical and historical context and any artistic imagination are designed to support the truth and intention of the Scriptures. Viewers are encouraged to read the gospels. The original names, locations and phrases have been transliterated into English for anything spoken.” (Angel Studios on-screen disclaimer before the start of Season One, Episode One)

The Creed

Will start meeting again in February 2023. 

We will be following Bishop Barron’s THE CREED.  In Light from Light: A Theological Reflection on the Nicene Creed, one of the Church’s leading thinkers invites skeptics and seekers to discover the intellectual richness of the Catholic faith.  Walking through the ancient Nicene Creed, Bishop Robert Barron offers readers a clear and compelling explanation of the basics of the faith for a new generation, especially those who have wandered away.
