Finally, parents often feel ill-equipped to help form children in the Sacraments. Each Tuesday at 7:30-8:00pm and Saturday at 9:30-10:00am you are welcome to come to church as we go through the Catechism and the YouCat; this way you can grow in confidence as an adult Catholic with all its responsibilities. 

Please call us at 705-424-1551 if you have any questions, Fr. Jim is always available to help
