Casa Community

Community Life at the Casa is grounded in Christ’s message to walk with one another in love — to serve and forgive one another as He has done for us. The Casa extends its hand to families bringing new children into the Church, to those looking to reconnect or grow in faith, and to those overflowing with compassion who can act as beacons of light for others. Start here to find better relationships with your Creator, your community, your peers and others who need your compassion.
