Farewell from Vincent

I’ve been blessed to cross paths with you, the most extraordinary and wonderful children of God whose impact has changed my life for the better. It is in each of you that I see the majesty and glory of Heaven, the very Presence of God, the true Beatific Vision.

Farewell from Chris

Even though we will be apart, if we continue to sing at Mass and for the glory of God, we will always be singing together as one. And that sentiment will always bring joy and peace into my life.

Farewell from Julie

A musical note at its best is a spiritual ripple. You can’t see it or measure it, but you can feel it and act from it. Maybe it would be purple with a blaze of fire bedazzled with silver glitter if it showed itself. Hard to say really.

We are invited to Encounter Mercy

Seeing the great need for mercy and healing in the world, Pope Francis called for the Year of Mercy—a special period, also known as a Holy Year or Jubilee Year, for the Catholic Church. It is a time for the Church across the world to take approximately a year to focus on forgiveness and healing in a special way. Pope Francis has asked us as individuals and as a Church “to be a witness of mercy” by reflecting on and practicing the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
