Saint Francis de Sales Seminary Dinner
The Seminary Dinner draws over one thousand Catholics together each year for one reason - to invite the faithful into our mission of forming holy priests. It is a joyful evening that gives the Church (you!) the opportunity to meet and support the remarkable group of men who are being called by God to the priesthood.
The 17th Annual Seminary Dinner will be held on Friday, October 4, at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee. Please join us as we celebrate the men who are answering the call of Christ. If you are unable to attend, you can still offer important help by sponsoring a seminarian.
Visit www.sfs.edu/AnnualDinner for details, or call (414) 747-6463.

Healing the Whole Person Conference
As we grow as disciples on mission, we accompany others who struggle with anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, illness, or patterns of sin they cannot seem to break. Do you know how to help others (and yourself) bring these wounds to God and receive His gifts of healing and peace? In Healing the Whole Person, Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT, and Dr. Bob Schuchts (author of Be Healed) will help us to understand and receive the healing our Lord longs to give us through the sacraments and prayer in the heart of the Catholic Church.
Registration opens in November. For more information, visit: johnpaul2center.org/healingthewholeperson
