From the Pastor for May 28, 2017
St. Damascene once said that, "Prayer is the raising of one's mind and heart to God…” Jesus once taught that we are to love God, “…with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. Matthew 22:37. I do not know about you but I have a sense that in my life that prayer presents me with the opportunity to love God in a greater way.

Respectfully yours in Christ,
Fr. Tom Morgan
Q: What difference has it made that I was baptized and how do I share the Good News of Jesus with the unique gifts I have?
M: Lift someone up who has fallen down. Lift the spirits of a friend who is sad. Lift up your heart in praise and gratitude for the gifts you have been given.
