Faithful Families is a gathering of Catholic women from the three Salina parishes who want to enhance our spirituality as individuals, wives and mothers. Participation in monthly activities, whether listening to speakers or sharing in Bible studies, provides an opportunity to grow in our understanding of the faith and to affirm one another in our role as wife and mother. Taking time once or twice a month out of our busy lives for Faithful Families is an investment in the growth of our Catholic faith as well as that of our family.
All women of the parish are welcome to attend any of the events and no registration is necessary.
Presentations are scheduled during the school year. All meetings will take place in the St. Mary Parish Center, Meeting Room 1, from 9 to 11a.m.
