TEAMS OF OUR LADY (TOOL)
TOOL is a lay movement officially recognized by the Holy See under the Pontifical Council for the Laity. A team is a group of five to seven couples and a spiritual advisor who meet once a month to share, pray and discuss challenges of living a Christian marriage and life. Couples use a time-tested format to meet their needs and desires of growing closer in love and faith through Teams of Our Lady and in the process they discover support for one another and for their marriage. Currently St. John’s has one team. If you have any questions, please contact Dana Meier at (515) 975-2960.
