Faith Communities (FAC)

FAC Mission

Inspired by our Catholic, Benedictine, and ecumenical heritage, the Faith Community Ministry team provides a variety of programs and events that foster spiritual and personal growth.  The Benedictine Values are imbedded in our retreats, scripture study groups, prayer and reflection groups and faith formation events. We strive to create open dialogue with people of all faiths and backgrounds fostering deeper understanding as we explore the strengths of our common values and the richness of our differences
