New Bulletin Columns

Check out each week's Bulletin for two new columns! Fr. Paul is offering us "Preparation for Sunday Mass" where he is giving us questions based on the Sunday readings. Take time to meditate on these questions and let them grow your participation in your Catholic life. The second column is called "Technology Corner" and will share ways to use your smart phones, tablets and computers to grow your Faith. Please let us know in the Parish Office if you have favorite resources that you'd like to share.
