Next Communio Event! (For Couples)

Our next Communio “event” will be a 5 week Digital Date Night Series for married couples.  Registration for this is free.  This is a wonderful way to strengthen your marriage! Please see the attached flyer for more information and for a QR code that will go straight to Brandon Estes’s email and you can let him know you’d like to be a part of this wonderful program. This is a video series with discussion questions that you do completely on your own (unless you choose to participate with another couple or in a small group). Caitlin and Brandon Estes will be the “lead” couple, so please contact them with questions.  (You can always contact me as well if you would like.)  Remember, you will NOT register here on Realm.  Thanks for being a part of our parish – by participating in our Communio events, you not only uplift yourself and/or your spouse and/or your children, but you uplift everyone in the parish!  We need that at this time!!

By improving our lives, we positively impact the lives of those around us.

Corona Virus Protocols

In light of Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order on March 2, some have asked if there have been any changes to our church practices. All coronavirus protocols in the Catholic Diocese of San Angelo remain in effect until further notice. These include liturgy, faith formation, religious education, youth ministry, sacraments, gatherings, Catholic schools, etc. The Diocese of San Angelo is currently studying the executive order of the governor, which is set to take effect on March 10. The diocese will be in communication with pastors, school personnel, and employees, as diocesan policies impact parishes, Catholic schools, and all our operations. The diocese will also obtain input from local officials and health authorities.
