September 2018 Message From Fr. Peter

Saturday, September 01, 2018

I greet you with much joy as begin the New Church Year.

With Summer vacation over and our children and young adults back to school, parish life now shifts to high gear. Later this month our Church School program begins and we resume our Adult Scripture Study.

As we begin the new Church Year, It is good that we celebrate the Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Live-giving Cross. Its placement by the Church at this time of the year is intentional, as it reminds us about the reality of the life in Christ,.
