St. Jane Frances Roman Catholic Parish will be offering a new program "Remembering Church," on Tuesday evenings during February. The program is sponsored in conjunction with the parish outreach committee.

Meetings will begin at 7 p.m. in the Monsignor Muth Room, with Rev. Steven Gosnell as moderator.

"We want to reach out to those people in our community who, for some reason, no longer come to church," said Pat Maldies, a committee member. "At our first meeting, we'll break down into small discussion groups and begin to talk about the reasons they stopped coming to church."

Group leaders will compare notes, make suggestions, and raise questions after each session.

"We will try to answer questions, calm fears, listen to ideas and, hopefully, resolve issues that may be keeping them away from church or keeping them from growing in their faith," Gosnell said.

If you would like to attend, please call the parish office, 255-4646, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.
