Faith In Action — February 2017
In our parishes, schools and Catholic organizations, people are doing acts of charity, justice and peace; all part of the Faith that we profess. This section of our website is intended to recognize those acts and inspire us all. Check back often, and join in the celebration of our Faith – alive in our communities!
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, The season of Lent is now upon us. It is an opportunity to renew and deepen our relationship with Jesus, and to renew the choices we make, so that we might live as he taught. In fact, if we take seriously the Lenten program, it offers us the opportunity to renew our whole life!
