INQUIRY: Sundays in August
Parish Office Conference Room
Sundays during August
11:15 a.m. - Noon

Grab your coffee and donut, and come join us. Bring a friend or relative as well.

We live in a world in which people are searching for answers to questions that matter. For instance, some folks might like to know more about a Jesus they hear people refer to but are uncomfortable asking anyone about him. Or some may know about Jesus but were raised in a tradition that saw the Catholic Church in a negative light and would like to ask the uncomfortable questions. Or some folks may have been baptized Catholic but weren't raised in the Church so are unsure of where they "stand."

INQUIRY is a wonderful safe place to bring questions, concerns, as well as a desire to share one's own thoughts and journey. Is this you? Or is this someone you know? You are encouraged to "come and see." Come and spend some sharing time with Sherry Pinkston. She and her team are here to "be" with folks right where they are. Together, we will explore. Let the fun begin!!!
