Attention 7th, 8th & 9th Grade Girls!

First of 20 weekly lessons starts on September 28th

BLAZE is forming groups at St. Benedict! BLAZE is the Walking with Purpose ministry for tween/teen girls. The mission of BLAZE is to use Scripture to speak truth into the hearts of young girls who are bombarded by lies about their true worth and beauty. Each week, participants will be led through an ice breaker activity and a short lesson based on a lie found in the world and a truth found in Scripture. The girls will also leave with a small take-home gift which corresponds with the lesson. Click HERE to learn more . Click HERE to see the twenty week calendar.

Bible 101 Class with Deacon Jamie Morgan

This class is FREE!

On Monday, September 28th Deacon Jamie Morgan will offer a free Bible 101 class at 7PM. This class is for Catholics, no matter where you are on your faith journey, who want to better understand the Catholic bible. What makes a Catholic bible different? How do I go about reading the whole thing? There are so many on the shelf at the store-which do I buy? And more! This class will be offered both LIVE in the PLC and Via Zoom. Because of social distancing requirements, we will have a limited number of in-person spots.

Questions can be directed to Ann Shevlin at

NOTE: This class will be recorded and available on our website approx. 1 week after the live event.

St. Benedict Blood Drive

Sunday, September 20 in the PLC 8 AM – 2 PM

Scheduled donors will receive an email before the drive regarding arrival and check in procedures. Donor sign-ups will be after each Mass before the drive or you can sign up on-line by going to and enter sponsor code: stbencc to schedule an appointment! Due to the COVID 19 background this drive will be by appointment only and donors for this this drive will have to schedule their donation appointment in advance.

 Also the American Red Cross is now offering a new COVID 19 Antibody testing service being performed for all donors completing a blood donation. This is a free service that will test and provide results to donors to reveal if they have COVID 19 antibodies (meaning that they have been exposed and possibly had a mild case) and have possibly built up some immunity. Donors will get their results regarding the antibody tests a few days after the drive directly from the Red Cross!
