This Fall, 2017, we will walk with the plight of Job which is sometimes close to our walk of Faith. In January, we will study Jesus’ story in the Gospel of Luke. Luke (also wrote the Acts of the Apostles) wrote his Gospel probably between 80-85 A.D.   If you are interested, registration forms will be in the kiosks in June and July. Fill them out and return them with your payment to Faith Formation or the Parish Office.
