At the 10:30 am Mass on January 5th, everyone is invited to join…

But unfortunately, most families are a little bit less than “Rockwell perfect.” If a big family event is approaching over the holidays, there's a good chance that while you look forward to it, it may also bring stress and anxiety.

AN EXPLANATION OF THE SYMBOLS In order to understand the symbols in the newly renovated floor of our parish church, we must look at it as a whole.
