 “What is a vocation? It is a gift from God, so it comes from God. If it is a gift from God, our concern must be to know God’s will. We must enter that path: if God wants, when God wants, how God wants. Never force the door.”
— St. Gianna Molla

Thank you to everyone who attended St. Mary’s Evening With the Heart of Jesus in June and July. We have one more event coming up in August. Please join us on Wednesday, August 25 for an evening of prayer, praise and worship!
