EMPOWER Parent Ministry

A Ministry of St. Patrick

EMPOWER Parent Ministry

Empower was created with you – the parents – in mind. It’s no secret raising our children in today’s world is tough. Thankfully, we have the gift of our Catholic Church to not only provide us with graces to sustain us, but also a foundation to guide our decisions, choices, and values. No matter where you are on your faith journey, Empower provides you with information, support, encouragement, and community.  Each month we welcome a guest speaker on 3 different dates so you can choose when works best for you! Dates change throughout the month, but times are always the same; Sunday — 10:30-11:30AM, Monday — 6:15-7:15PM, and Wednesday — 7:00-8:00PM. Please check the Parish calendar for specific dates.
