Thursday, March 27, 2014 at 7:15 pm Leasing vs. Buying:
Which Option is Best for You? Are you or someone you know in the market for a new vehicle? Do you want un-biased, accurate information about buying or leasing your next new car or truck whenever that might be? Join us as Mike Scarpa, President of South Shore Auto Leasing, discusses the benefits and pitfalls of leasing and purchasing. His discussion will cover financing, customer cash, manufacturer rebates and dealer incentives as well as information regarding refinancing a car you already own and extending leases.

Thursday, May 22, 2014 at 7:15 pm Which Vocation Is for Me?
Discerning the Next Steps on My Journey A Catholic life can be lived out in one of three ways: marriage, the priesthood/religious life, or the single life. Each can be a beautiful vocation if we truly allow God into our decision making and life. Join us as Fred Herron discusses how we can discern which path is the one we and God most want for us, and how we can discern a later-in-life vocation, perhaps when our first path has come to an end. Fred Herron has more than 30years experience in Catholic education, faith formation and spiritual direction, has addressed national and international audiences on these topics and teaches theology at St. John's University and Fontbonne Hall Academy where he is Chairperson of the Department of Religious Studies. He is also the author of several books and articles.
