Donuts and Dogma

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

[then] 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 Culture.”

In 2018, Fr. Rossi became our pastor and formed a team of outstanding

presenters to create a series focused on The Pursuit of Happiness From

Catholic Perspective.

Since 2013, many of these excellent teaching sessions have been recorded

and are now available for download in .mp3 format.
