In addition to providing opportunities to gather together, our events provide important funds needed to operate our large -- and growing -- parish. The Parish Savings for the Future fund provides needed monies necessary when repairs arise, or facility updates are required at the parish, school and religious education programs. Your participation and support of our events is essential in attending, but also in volunteering to help us plan and hold all of these events!

- Mar. 18 – "Of Gods and Men"
"A luminous tale of faith and heroism!" "Incredibly moving!"
A great Lenten film! Loosely based on the life of the Cistercian monks in a monastery in Algeria from 1993 until their kidnapping in 1996, Of Gods & Men tells a story of eight French monks who live in harmony with their Muslim brothers. When war and violence come upon the area and fear sweeps through the region, the monks struggle with the decision to leave or stay.
The annual SMG Parish Auction is our largest fundraising event of the year. Previously held in the fall, the event was moved to spring for 2016 with overwhelmingly positive results!
