    Hi there!  We are offering a training for the God and My Family award.  Join us to assist your daughter on the journey to learn more about her faith.  This training offers you, her teacher and guide, lots of valuable resources to assist in building on and expanding the joy that is our Catholic faith.

    We will give you the basics and answer some of the questions that you might have around these awards.  It is not too late to start the journey!  See you then.
