"With everything changing we need something in our lives that isn't changing; the truth of the Gospel and our faith can be that one place where we can ground ourselves.”

Stephanie Trautman, 10:40-10:55
Have you ever wondered what it was really like for Mary as she carried Jesus in her womb through the joys and trials during those nine months? Stephanie Trautman had a glimpse.

Fr. Michael Tupa, 10:45-10:55
Repentance is one valuable aspect of the Advent season. Amidst the current crisis, the Church, too, has been called to make reparations and be reconciled to the survivors of abuse.
