April 1st, 7PM in the St. Mark’s Parish Hall

Practicing faith at home is fun, inspiring, and sometimes really darn hard. Come as we share ideas22956816720_3d1c10abea_z on modeling and teaching faith for our children and grandchildren.

We’ll listen to a few parents share their successes and failures in passing on their faith at home, and then we’ll open up for a panel discussion. Our hope is that everyone goes home having heard at least one thing that feels like it might just work in their family.
