Exodus 90

Posted on November 18, 2019 in: From the Pastor

Exodus 90
MEN OF THE PARISH We Need You   Exodus 90 is a spiritual exercise for the renewal of the Church. It's a challenging 90-day period of prayer and asceticism, supported by a fraternity of like-minded men.   How It Works There's too much distraction, addiction, and loneliness in men today, even good Catholic men.

Catholic Young Adults: The Musical
A new musical from the creator of Moonshine Abbey   At Catholic Beer Night, the CYAs hear a rumor that St. Stephen’s is closing! Can they rally together to find a way amidst the chaos of their own dating novenas, come-and-sees, and lust for Latin to beat the odds and do what no one ever expected a band of millennials to do… save the parish? Fr. Kyle Kowalczyk’s new musical distills the essence of Catholic Young Adult subculture in an uncomfortably accurate, unexpectedly poignant, and reverently hilarious brew.   Tickets go on sale O...
