Nathanael Winnipeg
  1. Title 1

I wish to commend to all who are desiring to grow in their Catholic Faith, the Archdiocesan program entitled, “Nathanael”. Adult catechesis and faith formation are an essential part of the Church’s mission and the Nathanael leaders are very dedicated to this ministry. As I travel throughout the Archdiocese, I hear many positive reports about this excellent program and I recommend the Nathanael program to you without hesitation.
