March 17 Weekend

The Parish Pastoral Council survey requested several times for more opportunities to hear quality speakers, to help people grow in their faith.   Mark off the weekend of March 17 for our first speaker series.   Karlo Broussard, a nationally known Catholic speaker, will give a presentation here at the parish Saturday, March 17 at 10:00am.    He’ll give another talk geared towards young people on Sunday, March 18 at 6:00pm.   (Additionally, he’ll speak with St John Neumann Regional Academy students on the Friday afternoon.)   We’re extending the invitation to his talks to the Catholic community in our area.   Please—adults and teenagers—support this new venture!
