About Rodzinka Ministry

 Rodzinka means “little family” in Polish, and it is the name that St. John Paul II used for groups who would get together to discuss and live out the faith. Today, Rodzinka Ministry strives to help you grow in faith as a family. We offer "Family Faith Bites" which gives you a weekly recipe and resources to help you grow closer to God. We are also rethinking Faith Formation. Programs at the parish are great, but we want to help you dive even deeper once those classes have ended. Our "Supernatural Virtue Podcast" accomplishes this mission by discussing key teachings of the Catholic Church, especially through the lens of St. John Paul II. So sit back, relax, and let us help you bring the light of Christ to the comfort of your home. 

We also offer free local courses on the teachings of the Catholic Church, teacher formation, marriage preparation classes, and much more. Check out everything we offer or drop us a prayer request or suggestion. Thanks for visiting and welcome to our "little family."
