All the latest from SPX
September 7/8 2019
In this world, you’ll have struggles. You’ll face opposition. You’ll be challenged. And there’s a reason for that: this world is not your home. So answer hate with love, find joy in the midst of trials, and rely on a strength beyond yourself. You’re meant to be … Different .

Sept 8 - Week 1
You're called to be different

THIS WEEK AT SPX
The Archbishop Is Coming
to SPX
Please join on us Saturday, September 21st when Archbishop Gregory will be celebrating our 5 pm Mass. Let's show him a great SPX welcome!
MSM Starts on Tuesday
Middle School Ministry (MSM) serves students in grades 6-8th. Our evening begins with an activity, then after a large group message we break in to small groups to dive deeper into what we are learning...and to grow in Christ-like relationships. At SPX we believe that life change happens in relationships, and that our Small Group Leaders can help create an environment where that happens.
Check us out on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:15 PM in The Garage.

Sacramental Prep Information
Sacramental Prep is a two year process of Faith Formation along with Sacramental or Confirmation Prep classes.
If your child attends a public school they must be enrolled in our KidMin/MSM program starting in at least First Grade/Seventh Grade to be eligible. If your child attends a Catholic school (minimum start First Grade/Seventh Grade) they are receiving their Faith Formation daily and will only need to attend the additional sacramental prep classes in their Second Grade/Eighth Grade year. All children from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade are welcome in our KidMin program, and all Students from Sixth Grade-Eighth Grade are welcome in our MSM program.
