Participants will also discover easy-to-use, practical resources from CRS to enliven their parish community, and be able to network with other parish leaders and representatives.
The program begins at 6 p.m. with a simple supper at no cost.
The auditorium at St. Thomas is located at 1229 East Lancaster Avenue in Rosemont, next to the McDonald’s restaurant on Route 30, with easy access to I-476.
