Grandparents and Special Friends Day Volunteers Needed!
Jubilee Year Of Mercy - Pope Francis' Call To The Faithful
This week's gospel for the 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, highlights Jesus' life as a prophet (Luke 1. 1-4; 4. 14-21). Luke shows Jesus as the one God promised, but also as the one His own people reject. In religion class this week, we will read the Apostle's Creed and reflect on what we believe.
