MANITOWOC, Wis. — “Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom,” written by John O’Donohue, will be the focus of the second Father Bill Zimmer Forum of the 2018-19 schedule. The discussion will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Oct. 9 at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, 2406 S. Alverno Road.
The book group, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Endries Family Heritage Room, located on the second floor of the main building on campus. The event is sponsored by Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, and the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay, Inc.
