    • Happy Thanksgiving!

      1st Sunday of Advent

      I hope that you and your families had a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving! In the midst of such a crazy year, we still have much to give thanks to Almighty God for. I am thankful for the gift of life and faith and the gift of family and good friends. Faith (God), Family, and Friends got me through this year of pandemic, transition of Bishops, and disarray. Leaning on those three helped me remain steadfast through those rough waters. I am so grateful for them!
