Our Mission: To make Jesus Christ known and loved.
We do this through helping young adults engage in a meaningful way with the Our Lady of Grace Parish community to invite them deeper into the Worship Services, Liturgical Ministries, Pastoral Care, or Service to and for our Community.
Did you miss a session in the Light the Way Bible Study? Do you want to listen to the talk again? Catch up on what you missed here! Each session will have a recording of the talk and any materials that were handed out during the talk and small group sessions.
Light the Way is a nine-week practical Bible Study that will journey through the Acts of the Apostles.  The Study will open the Scriptures to participants, with the goal of helping them encounter Jesus.  

From the Pastor

Father Kevin Finnegan

On February 24 and 25, Our Lady of Grace will be hosting its 4th annual Prayer Fair all weekend long.  

The Prayer Fair helps us all as fellow parishioners learn about various approaches to pray and grow in our own personal prayer life. This in turn helps us as a community to grow in holiness. Something I am very proud of is that the Prayer Fair workshops are led and hosted by our fellow parishioners – people like yourself, sharing how they pray, giving insights into what they have found helpful.  Hopefully this gives you encouragement to say: I too can pray. I too can take time to be with Jesus and know his love!  This is such a great gift – a gift to our parish to share in the fruit of the Spirit, 
knowing the joy, peace, love and strength of Christ when we remain in Him.  This is a time for all of us to grow in our faith, to grow in magnanimity as a community – a community of large and ever-expanding souls! – souls that love more every day.

Thank you to the many parishioners leading, hosting and helping with the OLG Prayer Fair. I ask that you spend a few extra minutes on this special weekend attending a Prayer Fair workshop. Know that you and our entire parish are in my prayers!

Friday, March 16, 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Sposi Novelli’s mission is to engage and support married couples through the first five years of marriage by creating a community that fosters a sense of support and belonging.  Through formation, reflection, and awareness, a couple’s marital relationship with God at the center is strengthened and made more fruitful.  Discipleship becomes more intentional through opportunities to steward others in service, participation, and partnering with other parish ministries.  Sposi Novelli hosts several formal and many informal events throughout the year.
