Fr. Drew has selected from the Book of Revelation, Chapter 21, "Behold, I make all things new," as the theme for his parish this year.
Since its founding three decades ago, St. Laurence has been a welcome harbor, striving to be a people centered in the love of Christ, living to glorify God in all we do. Here we find spiritual refreshment and renewal, numerous opportunities to learn & grow in our faith, and a variety of channels to serve others with gladness. We are abundantly blessed with a 17-acre campus which includes a beautiful church that seats 1,500 people for each Mass; a Chapel of Divine Mercy for perpetual adoration; the National Blue Ribbon award winning St. Laurence Catholic School for PreK-Grade 8; the Weekday Children’s Program, a sought-after early childhood education program; and the new Ave Maria Parish Life Center.
Today, we are a parish of 7,400 families, committed to learning, growing, connecting and loving through 80+ ministries and parish groups.
On behalf of Fr. Drew Wood and Fr. Jaison Thomas, our deacons and parish staff, we welcome you to St. Laurence and invite you to engage in the life of this vibrant Catholic community! There is something for everyone here — meaningful ways to serve, to pray, to worship, to learn and to grow in fellowship and friendship.
Join us on our journey of growing as an Engaged Church!
Last fall, we focused on ways to LEARN about our faith. During the winter, Fr. Drew invited us to GROW in deeper communion with Jesus. This Lent, our parish will focus on ways we are called to CONNECT.
Lent presents an ideal time for us to connect. Maybe start with your family and talk about the Sunday gospel over dinner... or introduce yourself and start up a conversation with someone you meet at Mass... or join a Lenten Small Group and discuss questions through the series Disciples on the Journey.
Let's START TALKING about God!
