On the “Hope” Side of the Ledger… There’s the ongoing activity of the terrific Young Adults Group at my parish, which I continue to plug and hold up as a model for other young adults at other parishes: Friends in Christ, With wonderful Guest Speakers, Edifying Presentations, Opportunities to Serve and Minister, and collaborative and [Read More...]
