Summer Break

05-27-2018Fr. Larry Merta

I will take a needed rest from writing as I get out into the field for other photo opportunities and reflection. We will resume the Pastor's Desk page in September.

Many of you will also be taking a break from the normal rhythms of the academic year. If and when you prepare for a getaway be sure to plan ahead and see where the best times and places for mass are at www.masstimes.org.
