Our Center for Education and Ministry, 35 Essex St. (across from the church) opened in 2006 and is the center of non-liturgical activity for the parish. With 15 classrooms, several conference rooms and offices and a large gathering hall with commercial kitchen this beautiful building is a beehive of activity. During the school year, our Religious Education students gather 3 days a week for classes and our 30+ ministries make great use of it the rest of the time for a host of meetings and events.
