Are you concerned about the future of our church? Have you committed to raising your children (or helping to raise the children of the parish by agreeing to do so at their Baptism) in the Catholic faith yet honestly are not doing such a great job at it? Do you know someone who has fallen away from the church and would like to help welcome them back? If you have any of these concerns, then please join us for the Strong Catholic Families kick-off meeting on Sunday, June 25th right after the pancake breakfast (around 1 pm) in Fellowship Hall.
