St Lawrence – Sacred Heart

faith formation

our vision

Create a parish of missionary disciples whose personal relationship with Jesus Christ inspires others into a life-changing relationship with Him.

from mourning to joy

bereavement program

Our Christian faith is the very key to healing after the death of a loved one and it is vital to living a life filled with promise, peace, and joy. St. Lawrence O’Toole’s Bereavement Ministry meets weekly to help you work through your loss with group support and the GriefShare program. Practical strategies will help you move through the grief process with the goal of rebuilding your life while experiencing significant healing and growth in faith.

acts of the apostles

scripture study

Acts of the Apostles is the story of how a few Christians, empowered by the Holy Spirit, were chosen to spread Christ to the whole world. Acts spans a period of almost 30 years following the Resurrection of Jesus, when the early Christians ”turned the world upside down” while spreading the Good News. Written by St. Luke, Acts provides a glimpse of the amazing power and guidance of the Holy Spirit!

33 days to eucharistic glory

a spiritual pilgrimage

At critical times throughout Salvation History, God’s people have been invited to consecrate themselves. We are at one of those critical times. 33 Days to Eucharistic Glory is the first ever Eucharistic Consecration. The program includes a book with daily reflections, virtues to adopt, extraordinary prayers, and inspiring stories to help us experience Jesus in the Eucharist like never before. 

Men's Ministry

Men’s Ministry at St. Lawrence is a weekly meeting of Catholic and Christian men in the parish and neighborhood on Saturday mornings from 7 am to 8:30 am in the Large Conference Room (2nd floor) of the Parish Center. It is a great way to start your Saturday off on the right foot and still have the rest of the day for your family.

 

Our motto or mission statement at Men’s Ministry is, “As iron sharpens iron, one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). It offers an opportunity for brotherly camaraderie and to help sharpen each other to become what God has called us to be: the spiritual leaders of our families and our domestic church.

 

We start with bagels and coffee and an opening prayer. Then, we have a short presentation (20-30 minutes) that may include a video or two of an interesting Catholic-themed topic. This is followed by some great table discussion, and we end with prayer intentions and a closing prayer. It’s a wonderful way to recharge your Catholic faith and help you deal with the day-to-day distractions and pressures of an increasingly secular and godless society.

 

“If you are not drawing your life from Jesus, it means you are trying to draw it from some other source.  I’ll guarantee you that it’s not working.”  From Beautiful Outlaw by John Eldredge.

 

Give us a try. And similar to Vegas, “What is said in Men’s Ministry, stays in Men’s Ministry!”

Discipleship

At St. Lawrence O’Toole and Sacred Heart Churches, we work to stay focused on this vision. We understand that if we keep our eyes on Jesus, strive to grow closer to Him personally, and allow Him to lead our lives, we will be truly happy. We will also gain the confidence to influence the people around us, be witnesses to Jesus’ Truth and love, and help others encounter the beauty and freedom that comes from following Christ.

 

Jesus formed the Church because He wants us to worship, learn, and serve in the community. We cannot grow in holiness alone; we need each other. God reveals Himself to each of us in individual ways and we come to know God more fully by seeing how He relates to others too.  Our Discipleship Small Groups were formed to help our parishioners grow to be full missionary disciples.

Pathways to be an intentional disciple

Faith Formation Reflections

Will or Will Not?

Unlike essay-writing high school students who fill paragraphs with needless words to meet teacher requirements, every word of Scripture is there for a reason. The Holy Spirit has inspired every author of the Bible and whether they are Historical, Prophetic, or Wisdom books or Gospels or Epistles, each and every

Choose to Be Odd

Throughout Lent, I often found myself reflecting on Pontius Pilate. Since childhood, we have learned about his role in Jesus’ crucifixion, and whenever we say the Apostles and Nicene Creeds we are reminded that he was the one who ordered Jesus’ suffering. The Gospels recall that it was the Jewish

Service and Glory

On Holy Saturday I read a reflection that inspired me to think about the physical reality of Jesus’ body after he died. We are told that Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus took his body down from the cross, but I had never considered what hard work that would have been.

Victory!

Today is the anniversary of Jesus’ Resurrection. We commonly call it Easter, but that word can get muddled with bunnies and chocolate and bonnets and dilute the true significance of this day to the world and every single person in it. We may run home from church to hide plastic
