Bother Father

Time: 7:00-8:30 PM

East (Auxiliary) Parking Lot (Map Here)

What: Meet us on Thursday evening for a conversation, with Fr. Gerard Alba. Bring your own questions for Fr. Alba, and we’ll have a few questions already prepared:

How does the vocation of priesthood relate to the vocation of married life? How did you parents encourage you in the Catholic faith? What is one thing we should know about the Catholic teaching on marriage that we may not know? Be prepared for Fr. Alba to turn the tables — answering questions with questions!

Bring: Please bring a couple of lawn chairs.

RSVP: Your RSVP is appreciated:

Note: your RSVP helps us plan accurately, BUT, we understand plans change. No worries — just give us your best guess!

As a general FYI — babies and littles are always welcome!
