Celebrate the Year of Faith with us on Thursday, Sept. 19 at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in West Des Moines. Dr. Peter Murphy will offer insightful and practical ways to make the catechism more alive in our families, schools and parishes. Dr. Murphy is the executive director of the U.S. bishops' Department of Evangelization and Catechesis. This is a great opportunity for parents, teachers, catechists, youth ministers, RCIA teams and adult faith formation teams. We begin at 6:30 p.m. Childcare will be provided, though we ask that you register your children so we have the appropriate number of care providers and age-appropriate activities prepared. You can call 515-237-5058 to register your children.
