A Ministry of St. Michael's the Archangel Church

Gastonia, NC

Ongoing adult faith formation and catechesis of the parish community is a key concern of any church pastor.  At St. Michael the Archangel parish, our pastor, Fr. Buettner, personally presents many/most of these Sunday morning sessions offered throughout the academic year during the time our children are in their own faith formation classes (0845-0945).  In 2016, Fr. Buettner has formed a team of presenters to share a series of topics centered on answering the question, “Building a Catholic Culutre”.

Since 2013, many of these excellent teaching sessions have been recorded and are now available for download in .mp3 format.
