Parents Connect

Parents Connect is a group of parents of children of all ages with the purpose of connecting to God and each other. The group meets monthly for parent-focused formation where they discuss a topic with clergy and other experts in the parish. On other Sundays they meet in the Parents Connect room for fellowship, support, and coffee. Parents Connect has also enjoyed family service activities, family-oriented socials, dinner groups, and educational opportunities. 

Formation 

  • Monthly Discussion—on the first Sunday of every month Parents Connect hosts a parent-focused discussion led by clergy and other experts in the Parish
