and Media Resource Center
Contact: The Parish Library is available to all registered parishioners.
Our collection focuses on Catholic teachings, Scripture, prayer, Christian-living, saints, Mary, and Christian-themed fiction and non-fiction. All parish members are encouraged to borrow books. Located in the Parish Hall Conference Room, the self-service Library is available to all parishioners. The library is open anytime the Parish Hall is open. Books are arranged in broad categories (for example: Inspirational, Saints, and Catechesis) and it is a great place to just browse.

Virtus training sessions, which take only one evening, teach adults how to protect children from sexual abuse. Training builds awareness of the signs of child sexual abuse, methods by which offenders commit abuse, and five easy steps to prevent it. Awareness and education can be major steps in identifying potential abuse and can help in minimizing its long-term effects. Our diocese requires that all who work in ministries dealing with children, complete this training, which is offered frequently at our parish or online at www.virtusonline.org.
