Reconnect with the Catholic Church

Have you fallen away from the Catholic Church? Whether you stopped attending Mass one year ago or 40 years ago, the church invites you to explore full communion with Jesus Christ and his Church. If you would like to explore this possibility, consider attending a six-part series at St. Stephen Catholic Church after the new year. No commitments are required, just openness. Call the parish office at 945-6673 for more details and to register.
