Building Body…Mind…Spirit

The Rec Center is a place that promotes well-being for all ages, designed to enhance the quality of your life. A place to welcome all generations with opportunities for play, fitness, restoration and healing. A place you can go to after Mass, before Mass, in between the week to restore yourself, to have fun, to reconnect and heal in a community of believers.
