We will meet in the Adult Education room for snacks and social time prior to Ann's first talk. After Ann's talk we will serve a delicious Italian dinner followed by Ann's last talk for the evening. We will then have Fr. McGann with us for Adoration, Confession and Benediction! There is a $10/couple charge to help us cover our dinner expenses. We will also have a basket for donations for the Frailey family. 

We are blessed to have such great spiritual opportunities!
