This is a time to read and hear and renew some basic tenets of our Catholic faith. Each session will last no more than one hour. Come to one or all or just the ones that pique your curiosity. Each of the topics will be led by Fr. Richard and one other member of our St. Mary’s Staff. There will be simple bulletins called “Journey of Faith” for each topic. All are welcome. The hope is that these gatherings about our journey of faith will help us to know what is ours to do: “Pray, Serve, Give.”
