A new Theology 101 class will begin Sunday, August 19th.  The class will be taught by Dick Landkamer, and is based on Frank Sheed’s classic text, Theology and Sanity.  Sheed describes his book as “an elementary manual for laymen” that provides the “minimum equipment, basic training” necessary for an adult-level understanding of the Church’s principal doctrines.  No prior theological or philosophical background is required.  The class will meet weekly at 2:00 pm on Sundays and will run through the end of March.  There will be a sign-up table in the gathering space after Masses on July 28/29 and August 4/5.  You can also sign up or get additional information via email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Are you looking for an organization that helps instill in your daughter the values of faith and service to others? American Heritage Girls (AHG) is a Christ-centered ministry for girls age 5-18. Girls in AHG are encouraged to become servant leaders by participating in service projects for the church and community, earning badges that emphasize life skills, and taking part in team building, leadership opportunities, and outdoor activities. More emphasis will be placed on outdoor activities this year, with our National Program Theme of "Get Out There."
