Online services, Bible study & chats available

21 Mar

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are finding ways to “gather together” via alternative technologies. I welcome you all to join me for online services, studies, and chat groups, listed below. 

NOTE: Although services are publicly streamed on our parish Facebook Page, and Children’s Sermons are publicly posted on our parish YouTube Channel, only parishioners receive private access codes to GoToMeeting chat groups; however, if you wish to participate and need access information to GoToMeeting, please contact me, Fr. John, via email:




WEDNESDAY, June 17, Weekly Bible Study

Fr.

The course will be conducted over 4 sessions—June 10, 17 & 24, and July 1. To prepare for this study, participants are asked to read 1 Corinthians in its entirety.

With love in Christ, Fr. John Jillions, Pastor
