Topics for the year include: Who is Jesus?, The Cross, How to Pray, The Holy Spirit, Who is God the Father?, Communion of Saints, Lectio Divina, and more! Wednesday nights include three main components: Family Dinner, Breakout Sessions, and Adoration. Throughout the year, the new family program will also include: guest speakers, games, trivia night, marriage dinner, crafts, activities, and more!

Children ages 3-7 are invited to gather in the chapel the first and third Sunday of the month. Following the opening prayer, children will gather at the front of the church for a blessing then go to the Adoration chapel. During Children's Chapel they will hear the readings including the Gospel and then go to the social hall for a theme-based activity and prayer. The children will be given a "mission of the week" based on the Gospel reading for that day. The children will return to the church during the offertory. No registration is required.
