Divine Mercy Novena

Experience the power of prayer, and join us in praying the Divine Mercy Novena beginning on Good Friday (4/2). The Divine Mercy novena prayers were given to St. Faustina through an apparition of our Lord Jesus. Each day has a new petition that seeks God’s mercy for different purposes. The novena ends on Divine Mercy Saturday (April 10).

Vacation Bible School

Our VBS theme this year is “Around the World with Our Lady.” Each day, we will visit the various countries of Our Lady, Mother Mary, apparitions. Participants will also learn about the Rosary. There will be food, music, games and crafts all centered around Mother Mary. The week will be full of fun, fellowship and faith formation as we help children grow in their faith through love and devotion to Mother Mary.

  • 9 a.m. to noon each day (lunch not provided)

Totus Tuus
Similar to VBS, Totus Tuus provides religious education in a fun and engaging environment. The program's name is Latin for "Totally Yours" and was St. John Paul II's motto, taken from St. Louis de Montfort's "True Devotion to Mary." The program has a Marian focus, with a different theme every year that ties back into Marian devotions.

  • Grades 1-5 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, lunch not provided)
    Children will learn how to pray, about the importance of prayer, explore the sacraments and discover how to participate more fully in Mass.
  • Grades 6-8 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, lunch not provided)
    Designed for middle schoolers, students will strengthen their faith by focusing on prayer and meditation, small-group discussions, adoration, Mass and reconciliation.
  • High School Students (7 to 9 p.m.)
    Designed for high schoolers, students will strengthen their faith by focusing on prayer and meditation, small-group discussions, adoration, Mass and reconciliation.
