The Catholic Partnership Summit, held Feb. 28-29, had as its theme, “From Crisis to Co-Responsibility: Creating a New Culture of Leadership.” It drew 260 Catholic leaders from 63 U.S. dioceses, including bishops, diocesan staff, Catholic university presidents, corporate leaders, abuse survivors, philanthropists and more than 30 young adults…..
Our parish community is part of the mystical body of Jesus Christ – united with Christ by the powerful bonds of a shared unity in faith, hope and love – whose visible head on earth is Pope Francis I. As a community of believers we strive to grow in that fidelity, hope and love, daily strengthened by the Sacraments given by Christ to the Church for that purpose – particularly at the Holy Mass. We try to encourage each other in this life – which is a journey with eternal happiness with God in Heaven as its true goal – by prayer, including Eucharist adoration, kindness, good mutual example and also practical assistance.
