Pilgrim Virgin Statue
The Pilgrim Virgin travels throughout the parish from September until June each year with the purpose of encouraging and strengthening devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, Queen of Peace. Each household keeps Her in the home for one week, then transports Her to the next home on Sunday. This devotion brings Our Lady's Presence into your home and peace into your heart.

Order of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process of instruction, prayer and faith sharing in a group that leads a participant into full communion with the Catholic Church. We gather together for bi-weekly instruction from October until April so that the Catechumen (unbaptized) or Candidate (baptized) may be received into the Church at the Easter Vigil if unbaptized or during the Easter Season if baptized. Participants include any unbaptized adult; people of another faith or church; any individual who has been baptized but not confirmed; any adult who has not received his/her first Holy Communion; anyone interested in expanding his/her knowledge of the Catholic faith.
