Question of the Week

Third Sunday of Advent
John 1:6-8, 19-28

In the first reading, Isaiah rejoiced and thanked the Lord from whom joy comes. In the second reading, St. Paul tells us to rejoice always and to give thanks to God for the joy he gives us in our lives.
What is our joy, personally and as a community? How do we hold on to this joy as we face the uncertainties and complexities of life?

 

Grace 2.0: Leap of Faith

Our lives are full of worry and doubt. Often, we let these worries stop us from answering God’s call in our lives.

Mary didn’t let doubt stand in God’s way. She took a Leap of Faith and trusted in God, answering “yes” to His call.

Join us this Advent as we learn to follow Mary’s example and trust in God, taking our own Leap of Faith.
