April 14, 2012

Dear Parishioners, If you’ve ever looked at the inside workings of a wristwatch, you know how tiny some of the springs and gears are. Yet, if even one of them is missing or broken or not doing its job, the watch as a whole cannot function. That’s what it was like around here last week…
