Women of Faith On The Move!
Our regular meetings of Women of Faith at the Corner Pug the second Wednesday have run its course! The idea of women and men of faith meeting in a relaxed, meal atmosphere sharing our spirituality as the Body of Christ can more easily be accessed and available to all women and men if we move the venue to the cathedral lower church and use the new entrance approach and Asylum Avenue parking lot. We would keep the same time: Second Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm, Lower Church! Bring your own drink and snacks to share if you can. We will share the readings of the following Sunday. Women and Men invited! Any questions, contact Sr. Ann Marie, email@example.com 860-578-1432.
