As a faith community committed to growing as intentional disciples, we realize the compelling need to engage in lifelong faith formation. Whether this journey began for you as an infant and has remained strong ever since, or if you have turned from a vibrant living of your faith by consciously leaving the Catholic Church or simply drifting away, or if you are now experiencing an inner pull to become acquainted and more knowledgeable of the Catholic faith for the first time, you are welcome here. We seek to provide opportunities and support to meet your needs wherever you are.

ACTS retreats are structured on the foundation of Adoration, Community, Theology and Service. Parishioners come together to experience how their daily lives are fundamentally impacted by the Word and Sacraments of our faith. Through a weekend retreat (men’s and women’s) and through small faith communities, parishioners are led to live their faith more intentionally on a personal and community level.
Men’s Retreat: November 2-5, 2017 (begins on Thursday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon)
Women’s Retreat: April 5-8, 2018 (begins on Thursday evening & ends on Sunday afternoon)
Simeon and Anna Ministry (for those 60 and older)
This group meets on First Friday of every month at noon for lunch and a short presentation in the St. Francis Room.
Ongoing Opportunities to Grow as Intentional Disciples:
Life as an intentional disciple is rooted in an experience of God’s goodness and love that leads one to desire an ever deepening relationship with Jesus. Consider how you can engage in growing in your faith through these opportunities or other ways.
One of the clearest ways God desires to speak to us is through His revealed Word in the Sacred Scriptures. These gatherings focus on the Scripture readings of the upcoming Sunday.
Monday evenings, 6:30-7:30 pm Little Flower Parish House
Tuesday mornings, 9:00-10:00 am Hospitality Room
Saturday mornings, 7:30-8:30 am Little Flower Parish House

Summer Men’s Nights are back! Join us for an outdoor evening Saturday, July 8 — 7-9 pm at the home of Paul Figliomeni (2332 Carriage Dr., Toledo). We will share an inspiring talk called Our Great God by Louie Giglio, a Christian author, songwriter and speaker who founded Passion Conferences ministry to help lead young adults to the Lord. Louie’s message raises our awareness and appreciation of Catholic teaching on the greatness and awesome power of God, from creating the entire universe to loving each one of us in a very personal way as created in His image. As men of faith, we are called to set the example of God’s power in our lives and in the lives of our families and all we encounter. Enjoy appetizers, drinks and plenty of fellowship as always. Also, save the date for the last outdoors Men’s Night this year – Saturday, August 12 — 7-9pm at the home of Paul Figliomeni. Speaker TBA. Questions? Email to Ed Gillig, Eric Zatko or Paul Figliomeni at email@example.com.
