Join The Cana Experience to renew yourself so every moment spent with your spouse and children counts.

YOU are invited to join Created & Called- Called to Motherhood – a small group for wives and moms and Reigning in Life- Becoming Provider – a small group for husbands and fathers.

Moms, do you sometimes wonder about who you are as a woman, wife, and mother? Do you desire strong friendships with other moms just like you? Grow closer to God while meeting with other moms who want the same things as you – to raise great kids and have a strong and fulfilling marriage. Groups for women meet twice a month between September and May at St. Raphael’s. 

Dads, do you ever wonder if you have what it takes to lead in your family? Join with other men to become a courageous leader for your family and in your workplace.
Groups for men meet twice a month from October through March at St. Raphael’s. 

Email Jody Pellegrene at with questions or to be added to the interested list.
