              ACC EVENTS OPEN TO ALL

Parent’s Night: All parents are invited to St. Ann’s in Wadena on Wednesday, January 15 from 7-8:15pm for the Daily Dozen of Catholic Parenting with Jim Otremba. Jim is a well-known Catholic Speaker and counselor that is excited to share his experience with us. Teens are invited to a youth night entitled Daily Discernment in the Parish Hall with our two visiting Seminarians.

 Alpha 2020: Alpha is an easy way to invite people to look at Christianity! Alpha is the beginning and is not meant to answer all of your questions, but to start the conversation. Alpha is a process that takes 11 weeks and includes a retreat in the middle. Kickoff for the winter Alpha at St. Ann’s in Wadena will be Tuesday, February 4th at 6PM! We encourage you to plan now to attend and invite your friends, especially those that don’t go to church or are unsure why church is relevant. There is no pressure and includes a free meal and childcare! Contact Victoria at vbulcher@saintanns.net or 218-632-7312 to register or for more information.                                                                                                                                                       We would like to invite anyone that wants to know more about the Alpha process or would like to serve on the leadership team to attend the Alpha team training, Tuesday, January 14th at 6PM in the Parish Hall.
