Parenting by “The Book”

Thursdays, beginning October 13, 2016
7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Parish Center Dining Room
Get together with other moms and dads to share your faith and journey as a parent. We’ll meet on Thursday evenings, but you can also access the videos online if you have to miss a session. All groups are for moms AND dads — come as individuals, make it a couples night out, or trade on and off weeks so one can stay home with the children.
Our First Study is Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother
Come and see how Mary, this model of discipleship, this Mother of Mercy, can influence who we are as mothers and as fathers.
Registration Opens September 25
$24.95 per participant to cover the costs of the materials and online access.
