'Listening Session' held

A "Listening Session" aimed at welcoming inactive Catholics back to the church will be held at 7 p.m. Monday in St. Aloysius Gonzaga Church, 157 Cleveland Drive, Cheektowaga.

Nonparticipating Catholics will have an opportunity to tell their stories of why they became inactive in the church.
