L.I.G.H.T. - Learning In God's Holiness Together designed for parishioners of all ages

L.I.G.H.T.- is a learning process for all ages that we have incorporated with PSR (Parish School of Religion) which is a school model process of learning for children grades 1-8.

L.I.G.H.T. -  unlike any other learning process, the Church has adapted in this century, goes back to a lifelong learning approach to Faith Formation.  This process brings all generations of a Church community together to share faith on a monthly topic.

L.I.G.H.T. - Learning In God's Holiness Together is held on the 1st Sunday of the month from 11:30am - 1:30pm in the Parish Hall.  The same program from Sunday is repeated on the 1st Monday of the month from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.  It's available at your convenience.  Registration is required so we have discussion materials and a lunch or dinner prepared for your participation.  More information can be found on the Drop Down under the website header RELIGIOUS EDUCATION.
