Introducing Friday Night Lights
Register Now!

We are pleased to present Friday Night Lights - Fun and Formation for PARENTS! 

Friday Night Lights is geared at helping CWA friends and families grow in their faith, in their marriages, and as parents. Each of our monthly Friday evenings will start with Mass at 6:30 p.m. for those who can make it, and then our formal program starts at 7:00 p.m.. The program includes a short video, and a group discussion; all accompanied by wine and snacks, and wonderful conversation with great CWA people! Our Legionary Priests will do their best to be part of every session, enriching and guiding our conversations. 

This year's Friday Night Lights program will include a study on Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body. Theology the Body is a comprehensive group study system that has helped tens of thousands of people grow in their understanding of their faith. In particular, it has a tremendous impact on improving our relationships.  It's the perfect program for parents and spouses, as   it will strengthen our marriages, and help us raise our kids! Talk about a GREAT DATE NIGHT!   (Babysitting is available). 
  • $50 Registration fee per person
  • $90 Registration fee per couple
  • $100 additional babysitting fee per family (this covers childcare for all 8 sessions) 
We hope to see many of you there - God Bless!
