• Thoughts from Fr. Mark....
      We enter the last weekend of another month. The days are passing quickly. The weather is mixed and changeable. The stores are getting ready for "Back to School" season.  Over the last month, I began to realize how life is precious, life is a gift. With funerals and baptisms as part of my journey. You observe how each experience affects the people around the area. Life is a gift, not to be taken for granted. Hopefully we see our Faith and our Prayer life as a gift. It is to be lived out, every moment of every day. We, as a people , live out our talents. Let us live out our gift of faith as well.
