Fellowship

Circle of Friends

Circle of Friends is a lively and diverse group of women supporting each other in pursuit of spiritual and personal growth.  The Circle gathers monthly to explore richness of our Catholic faith, its traditions, and their application to everyday life. Lap babies welcome.

This ministry meets monthly for healthy and challenging discussions.  Participants should have a desire and willingness to learn more about our faith and make new friends.
