Outstanding Features of HNJ

Welcome Back Catholics

If for any reason you have found yourself apart from God and your Church, know that God longs to welcome you back! Many inactive Catholics, for a variety of reasons, have left the Church, but are discovering a place of forgiveness and renewed peace as the Holy Spirit gently draws them. We at HNJ would like to provide you with the opportunity to explore your feelings among those who, like you, have stepped away.

Scripture Study for Adults

Our Adult Education/Formation activities are numerous and varied. They include lectures, interactive discussion groups, Parish Missions and weekly Scripture Studies on Sundays at 10:15 am.

Elementary Religious Education

We currently have over 350 students from PK3-6th grade enrolled in our Religious Formation Program where public and home-schooled children learn about their faith and prepare for sacraments. 

Life Teen & Youth Ministry

Our Life Teen program is a spirit-filled, life-giving experience every Sunday evening, beginning with 5:00 pm Mass, and followed by Life Night for teens in grades 9-12. Our 7th & 8th graders have an opportunity to attend The Edge Jr. High Ministry Wednesdays at 6:00 pm. 

Christ Renews His Parish Retreats

Twice a year, in March and September, we hold retreats for men and women, Sat, 8:00 am-Sun, 4:00 pm. Countless lives have been given meaning, marriages saved and lasting friendships and community-spirit formed. 

Small Church Communities

Our parish offers the opportunity of growing in friendship and faith in small groups of six to twelve people who meet every two weeks in each others’ homes or in our church facilities.

Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal order of Catholic men dedicated to serving God through His Church. They help with many parish and social activities including: Special Olympics, Beachside Festival, Holy Days, Lenten Fish Fry, and many other activities.
