Faith grows when it is lived as an experience of love received and when it is communicated as an experience of grace and joy. It makes us fruitful, because it expands our hearts in hope and enables us to bear life-giving witness: indeed, it opens the hearts and minds of those who listen to respond to the Lord’s invitation to adhere to His word and become His disciples.-Pope Benedict XVI, Porta Fidei Apostolic Letter, 2011, 7.

 Fr. Mitch Pacwa and our Pastor will be available for Confessions on Wednesday, Holy Thursday, and Good Friday.
