All Christian Formation families are invited to attend the 9 a.m. Mass on September 15. Following that, families will be offered coffee and donuts in the Parish Center. Then the adults will return to church to hear guest speaker, author and teacher, Grace Mazza Urbanski. Other parishioners are also welcome to attend this presentation. If you were at the Women of Christ Conference in 2017, you know what a marvelous and engaging person she is.

Her presentation will be “Unstoppable Catholic Families: Practical Ways to Live Like Jesus.” This hour-long mini-retreat will have time to laugh, hear stories, and reflect on how Jesus pays close attention to us every minute of the day. Parents and Grandparents will leave feeling inspired and equipped to share faith and prayer with their families. You will even have enough time to get home for the Packer game that starts at noon!

She shares her insights on prayer with parents, teachers and children as a regular contributor to Catechist magazine.
