C.A.F.E. Catholic Adult Faith ExperienceC.A.F.E. Catholic Adult Faith Experience

Adult Faith Formation

The 2007-2008 C.A.F.E. program is sponsored by St. Eleanor’s Catholic Adult Faith Formation Committee.
Program volunteers are always welcome.

All adults are welcome to attend the PREP program series held on Wednesday evenings from 6:35 PM - 7:35 PM. In the Guadalupe or Vianney Halls in the rectory

C.A.F.E. will be closed if inclement weather persists.  Please listen for school announcements as we will follow the school closing schedule.

 C.A.F.E. Babysitting.  Parents bringing their child or their children to any C.A.F.E. babysitting session will be expected to participate in that evening’s session.  C.A.F.E. will not be able to offer babysitting to parents that are not present during that same C.A.F.E. Session.

We would like to determine, in advance, the number of babysitters we will need for the evening. Pre-registration is appreciated but not required to attend.
