Are you one of those many Catholics who learned your faith as a child and stopped after you were confirmed? Perhaps you are eager to know more now that you are an adult? Well, this new series might be just where God is leading you! Msgr. Zapfel will also be present at our “Ask the Pastor”session. Twice a month, beginning September 19 on Tuesday evenings 7-8:30pm there will be a place where parents of children in religious education and any Catholic adult can grab a cup of coffee, some cake and ask questions about their Catholic faith. This is a FREE session, no commitment, no homework. Can’t wait until September? Write up your questions on the postcard in the gathering space and drop them in the question box on the table in church. We will answer them for you! Sessions are on the following Tuesdays: Sept 19, Oct 3, Oct 17, Oct 24, Nov 14, Nov 28, Dec 5 & Dec 19 will be our “ask the Pastor” evening with Msgr. Zapfel
