From Fr. Mike Shanahan | June 16, 2019
You may remember that my article in the bulletin last weekend included some information about the financial stewardship of the parish. I would like to continue with that topic.

So often, without thinking of themselves, they serve with great generosity the people entrusted to their care. Now, this weekend we have an opportunity to express our gratitude for this gift that we...
