Upcoming Adult Faith Formation Opportunity this Winter/Lent: 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 Winter/Lent for a course on our Catholic Faith using the Symbolon program found on www.formed.org: Symbolon: Knowing the Faith. For those who missed the opportunity to take part in this course in the Fall, Fr. Burish is offering it again. 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 St. Mary’s Church basement, at 7pm. 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. If you miss a session, you can view the video at www.formed.org, through the parish’s subscription. A $5 donation is requested to cover the cost of photocopies provided. Since space is limited, please call St. Mary’s Parish Office at 715-652-2806 to register by Tuesday, February 14th.
