Catholic Resources

October 2, 2012

If you missed Thursday night’s Shine the Light potluck event at Holy Cross, you missed a fun and entertaining evening! It was a great chance to learn more about the religious education programs we have at Holy Cross. There was a handout given at the end, and we wanted to share it with everyone here on the blog.  (Click here to download a pdf.)
