Make this a Holy Week to Remember

"While it is true that we are not physically present to one another it is also true that we are not apart.
For the church through God‘s grace and power will accomplish among us what God has always done –
He remains with us.
The moment we face is no greater than God‘s grace."

Bishop Michael R. Cote
Excerpted from his Chrism Mass Homily.
