PASTOR’S REFLECTION FOR DECEMBER 3, 2017

Pastor’s Reflection for October 8, 2017

Dear Parishioners, This world is in quite a turmoil. We have had natural disasters – flooding, fires, hurricanes and this past week, the horrific shooting in Las Vegas. There is racial divide, political dissensions, the continuation of abortions, the breakdown of family life, the fear of terrorism, and the list goes on. There is so much darkness in the world […]
