Program Announcement

Catholics Can Come Home begins February 9, 2017 at the Casa. People say they come to these gatherings because they had one or more of the following experiences:

  • Drifted away from the Catholic Church
  • Hold hurt or anger about the Catholic Church
  • Are unsure if the Catholic Church is relevant for their lives

Knit Together in Love and Light

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.

I want to enroll my children in Religious Education.

I want to check out Youth Group at the Casa.

I’m looking for adults like me who are interested in a faith-filled lifestyle.

I would like to volunteer to help the grieving, visit the ill or be a mentor to kids and teens.
