An amazing way to wrestle with the BIGGER questions of life while meeting new people and having fun. Alpha is an 11 week experience that is currently being done online. We watch an engaging video and enter into discussion for a chance to ask questions and share ideas and experiences. Each evening lasts about 75 min. If you are new to the neighborhood, Alpha is a great way to connect. If you are exploring faith or are open to learning about life through the lens of Christianity, you will have a ball. No previous experience of religion required. People from other religions are also welcome. The course is free and no commitment is required. If it is not for you there is no pressure to return.

We are a family-oriented group of Catholic men taking pride in anything we can do to help others. Active in church and community we support our Sunday school programs, music ministry, ALPHA, hospitality and ushering to keep our church facility open within guidelines during the pandemic. We are seen assisting with weddings, brunches, catered meals, hosted events, barbecues, and children’s annual picnics. We work closely with CWL, and Society of St Vincent de Paul, and we respond to help others and local Charity’s in need as best we can. Our Knights are always working to find ways to financially support outreach ministries, parishioners and community members in need while keeping the confidentiality of our benefactors in check.

In addition and subject to funding availability we assist families with home heating oil, with utility bills such as power and water, and occasionally with rent assistance.
