Parish Gala and Other Events
Adult Confirmation Classes Starting Soon:
Have you been Confirmed? Adult Confirmation classes for Catholics who have been baptized and received first Communion are forming now for Confirmation this Spring with Bishop Dewane. If you have not received the sacrament of Confirmation and would like to, contact Arielle Harms at the parish office to register or with questions.
Symbolon Series offered Sunday Evenings:
Ave Maria's Formed subscription offers so much Catholic content, it is hard to know where to start. Join us in viewing 10 sessions for the award-winning series Symbolon, available on Formed, Sundays, starting January 24 at 6pm in the parish hall. The sessions are selected from the full 20 session series to give an overview of the whole. Come for all 10 sessions, or pick and choose: the program is free. Contact Arielle Harms in the parish office to register. See the parish website for more information about signing up for your free account with Formed or stop by the parish office.
