The CALLED & GIFTED Workshop can be a MAJOR STEP in discovering God's call for your life.
Being Catholic means more than attending Mass regularly and living a good life: it also means helping the Church accomplish her mission, which is to spread the Gospel to every person on earth. God has called you to a unique role in this mission—a work of love that only you can do. God has also given you gifts of the Holy Spirit for the sake of the mission, gifts which are already at work in your life.
The Called & Gifted Workshop is a two-day program that will help you identify your gifts and discover your own call—and how to answer it. The Workshop will be held at St. Francis de Sales on April 8 and 9, 2016. Come and see how you have been “called and gifted” for the sake of the world!

This is a prayer to implore God's mercy upon the world, in reparation for the sins of humanity. Jesus gave it to St. Faustina, a Polish nun who lived during the 1930's, as a way for people to do penance for their sins and those of others. It is prayed on standard Rosary beads and many people pray it right after praying the Rosary.
Praying the Rosary
The Rosary is very nearly a perfect form of Christian prayer, being a devotion both to Our Blessed Mother and to her son, Jesus. It takes only about 15 minutes a day to say one set of mysteries, and the benefits are tremendous: stronger families, peace of heart, spiritual understanding.
