Beyond the Bulletin

Connecting Our Catholic Community

About the show

Striving to create an honest show about parish life, we introduce you to our parish staff, good talks, conversation, interesting guests, and parishioners like you. The goal is to build up the faith of our parishioners in these trying times as well as introduce you to our mission, ministries, and fellow parishioners. While we focus on our community here in The Woodlands, TX - we hope we can meet and bless others along the way!
