Compass Catholic Ministries

Teaches stewardship through a biblical look at personal finances. Our world tells us to focus on what we don’t have. The bible teaches us to be content and be grateful for what we do have. There are over 2,500 verses in the Bible related to handling money and possessions. In 1 Corinthians, Paul tells us how even he had to learn to be content. Through small group Bible studies and workshops, Compass Catholic Ministries teaches what God says about how we should live our lives and how we should handle our money and possessions. Contact us today to learn more about our small group Bible study programs. For more information click the following link:http://compasscatholic.org/

Enrichment

Becoming Women of Grace …
a yearly conference for women
This is a day to reflect, renew and refresh for women of the parish. Join us as we celebrate our identity as Catholic women in an environment that brings women together to learn from our spiritual foremothers and to affirm each other’s unique giftedness. Come celebrate ritually our diversity in our relationship with Christ and to reinforce our Catholic identity. Connect with other Catholic women for support and encouragement to one another to be Eucharist to others; to inspire ways of growing in our spirituality that continually renew our Christ-like relationships with others.

Cursillo / Ultreya

Cursillo is a movement of the Church which, by its own method, makes it possible for people to live what is fundamental for being a Christian. Cursillo helps people discover and fulfill their personal vocations, and promotes the creation of core groups of Christians who leaven their environments with the Gospel. The Ultreya (Spanish word meaning Onward) is the larger Cursillo community. It is the time for the members of the Group Reunions to meet with members of other Group Reunions. The Ultreya is also beneficial in providing the support and encouragement that each of us needs.

Mission

Each year our parish sets aside one week as a time of special prayer, listening, and spiritual renewal. A Mission is an opportunity for people to come together in prayer and reawaken their understanding and experience of God’s love. The structure of a Mission consists of two services a day and is conducted by a mission/retreat director. The morning Mass and presentation and the evening para-liturgical Word service are built around the Scriptures. The topics of the presentations are practical and inspirational. As with the parish retreat, all are welcome to come: young and old, single, married, those separated or divorced, and widowed.
