Grow in Your Faith

12-16-2018David Lins

A few times a year, Our Lady of Joy goes out of its way to plan and execute large, parish-wide events. Often, these take the form of parish retreats. Tragically, only a small percentage of you attend these retreats. Why?

Pray the Rosary with the Knights and others at 8:30am and 10:30am on Sundays (before and after the 9:00am Mass).


Epic Church History

Looking to grow in your Faith, but too busy to leave the house?


RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

Why would people remain Catholic despite all the news? Why are people still joining the Church? I’ll give you a hint: It’s the Founder, not the people.

Do you desire to serve God and your fellow parishioners? Do you want to learn to assist the priest at Mass?
