Jesus: Our Saviour
It has been evident that, through all of our prayers and the presence of the Holy Spirit, our community is growing and is becoming more open to the Lord and one another. The service includes an inspirational homily, witness talk adoration of the Blessed Sacrament ending with benediction. An open invitation is extended to you to join with us in celebrating the love of Jesus.

Sister Mary Gianna Thornby, DLJC is a convert to the Catholic faith. Growing up without any faith, she had a powerful conversion experience after surviving the shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, CO.
She was welcomed into the Catholic Church at the age of 19, while attending Franciscan University of Steubenville. After graduation, she served a year with NET (National Evangelization Teams) Ministries and attended the Emmanuel School of Mission in Rome, Italy, where she had opportunities for mission in Italy, France, Ireland, and Scotland.
At the age of 25, she experienced the call to religious life. Entering the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ on August 25, 2010, she made her first profession of vows on August 10, 2013. The Lord has given her a passionate love for life and the desire to help lead others to the fullness of life.
