Priesthood Sunday - September 26th, 2021

From the Desk of Father Davis

Friday, July 31, 2020

Among other things, our Gospel this weekend addresses the topic of distractions to the Christian life, things that divide our commitment to Christ, and those things that get in the way of us being heaven bound. Implied in this account, if not already abundantly clear, is our need to change, to get serious about embracing the motivations of Jesus, to have hope, and to persevere in our walk with Christ.
