Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

This past week on the Feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross and the 30th anniversary of St. John Paul II's historical visit to the Arizona desert, I formally announced to the public a campaign to strengthen evangelization and discipleship efforts in the Diocese of Phoenix.

Eucharistic Adoration - Adorers Needed - Why Should I be an Adorer?

Why Should I be an Adorer? There are many reasons! Most importantly is to visit and spend time with Our Lord Jesus Christ who is ever present in the Holy Eucharist (also called the Blessed Sacrament)

Adorers are needed on Mondays and Fridays at 3:00pm.


Consider Joining The RCIA Team!

Are you a baptized and confirmed Christian who loves Jesus and his Church? Are you interested in participating in the Church’s mission of evangelization – the very mission every Christian receives in their baptism? Are you open to new relationships and being a witness of faith for others?
