The world puts forward many images of what husbands and wives should be. Author Stephanie Pacheco reflects on the life of St. Anthony of the Desert and the modern challenges facing wives and mothers today.
"To be at the service of life, the greatest earthly good. To bind oneself to a family, to a spouse and to children is really like a religious vow in many ways: it gives up a great many goods in order to grow in the good of commitment, of formation in family life, which is ultimately directed by the Lord. And to do it well, it will take everything we have–and then some. It will lead us into the desert of our souls and present the furnace of solitude." Read more by clicking here.

Pope's Sunday Angelus Address
The world needs Christ more than ever: his salvation, his merciful love. Many people feel an empty void around and within themselves — perhaps, at certain times, we do too —; others live in restlessness and insecurity due to uncertainty and conflict. We all need adequate answers to our questions, to our concrete questions. Only in Him, in Christ, is it possible to find true peace and the fulfillment of every human aspiration. - Pope Francis
Christ has blessed our community with many talented individuals and we want to reach out as families to build a stronger Catholic community.
