Pastor’s Message

Upcoming Adult Faith Formation Opportunity this Fall

Too often we try to live a faith we don’t know or understand. Some of us stumble along with it, going through the motions. Others simply walk away.

Join Fr. Burish this Fall for a course on our Catholic Faith called Symbolon: Knowing the Faith. Presented by the most trusted and compelling teachers and filmed around the world with stunning cinematography, Symbolon: Knowing the Faith explains the essentials of the Catholic Faith in a way that will inform our minds and inspire our hearts. This program will be presented in 10 sessions (listed below) at Notre Dame Parish Life Center Cafeteria (or other suitable PLC meeting room) at 7:00 pm. The material covered in each session is not dependent on the session prior to it. If you are not able to attend each session, attend the ones that you can attend. A $5 donation is requested to cover the cost of photocopies provided. Please call Notre Dame Parish Office at 715-723-7108 to register by Monday, September 11th.
