A Ministry of St. Michael the Archangel Church

Gastonia, NC

Ongoing adult faith formation of the parish community is a key concern of any church pastor.  This year, at St. Michael the Archangel parish, our pastor, Fr. Matthew Buettner, in cooperation with Dr. Grattan Brown, STD and Associate Professor of Theology at Belmont Abbey College will be presenting a series covering “End of Life” issues. 

The following sessions are available in .mp3 format which will play on any appropriate audio player, iPod, or computer.  Enjoy! and may your faith be strengthened.
