Pastoral Messages from Fr. Rick – May 14, 2021

As we move toward Pentecost on this Feast of the Ascension:  Start by considering the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.  Which Fruits are most needed today in your life, your family, your parish, town, country…?

Which Gifts of the Holy Spirit need to be cultivated in order to yield the Fruits desired/needed?

Please see the Novena prayer in last week’s bulletin and join us Friday 5/14 to Saturday 5/22
