Throughout the year, St. Gregory the Great parish offers a variety of events for people of all ages, both newcomers and seasoned parishioners, with the goal of strengthening ties, deepening personal faith, and building a sense of community. In addition to parish related events, St. Gregory's vision and goal also includes offering the greater community a program of liturgical and artistic events throughout the calendar year. Whether it is an International Chamber Artists music program, a Quest Theatre performance, an icon exhibition or a Christmas Lessons, Lights and Carols celebration, St. Gregory the Great seeks to provide unique and enriching ways to spend an afternoon or evening in an aesthetically uplifting setting.
