FAMILY BIBLE STUDY
We are going to continue Family Bible Study this year on the SECOND Wednesday of the month. This is for the entire family but at least one adult needs to be there. (Parents, Grandparent, Godparent, etc.) It is a new approach to helping families talk about our faith. It will be held from 6:45 -7:45 pm and will be held in Fr. Nardecchia hall for grades 1-6. The K of C will be providing food again this year for your family. This night counts as a RE night for all grades.
After we eat, you will work together as a family on Bible verses to better understand them and the Bible. All materials provided. (Bring your Bible. If you don’t have one, it will be provided also.)
