September 27 - This is a strange year. For strength and to avoid duplication, we had joined our two parishes with St Ann and Our Lady of Lourdes for RCIA (convert classes). This worked very well until now. For the first time in 13 years, we had no one step forward to take instruction. That's a sobering fact. Countering that, we have 18 students receiving Confirmation this weekend from last year's class. Let's talk up our faith. It’s even more crucial now as we face such profound questions in everyday life. We can't retreat from that reality!
