The Personal Life unfolds as we discern our gifts and listen to God's call in our lives. As we grow as disciples of Christ, there is a desire to have God as the center of life and to deepen our prayer. The disciple seeks to find the sacred in every aspect of life.

Spiritual opportunities seek to provide a variety of ways for parishioners to experience conversion, and to be drawn deeper into their relationship with God-thus discerning their call and gifts, and claiming avenues of service to the community.

The Basilica Labyrinth

The Basilica became a peace site in April, 2008.  As part of the initiative, we built a labyrinth.
