CFM FAMILIES KICK-OFF 2017 YEAR

Leaders of Our Lady of the Wayside's Christian Family Movement (CFM) held their monthly meeting in the Gathering Place of the church Friday night, January 6.

About 200 OLW adult parishioners and their families belong to CFM. Members consider this ministry and its community of families, a key ingredient to the great parish life at Our Lady of the Wayside.

"CFM is the perfect place to meet, share and act on our Catholic faith, and enjoy social activities with a wide variety of people from across the parish. It's the perfect ministry for getting to know people and getting to understand how our faith plays a role in everyday life."
