CLAY MINISTRIES

On Tuesday, December 18th at 6:30 p.m., CLAY Ministries will hold a "meet and greet" opportunity at St. Agnes Murphy Hall for those that have a deep desire to evangelize their Catholic faith. This evangelization effort will not interfere with their work in other apostolates or organizations, but will hopefully enhance their passion to serve the Church by unifying efforts and instilling a sense of purpose across the Diocese.  Click here for more details.
