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.
