The local Young Life organization has a goal to introduce adolescents to Jesus and help them grow in their faith. This is done by building bridges of friendship and earning the right to be heard, sharing life and faith and allowing teens the opportunity to make an informed decision about who Jesus is.

Today (Sunday, June 9) we come to one of most important Christian days of the year and that which closes out the Easter season: Pentecost—commemorating an event described in the Acts of the Apostles chapter 2—an annual commemoration of what Christians hold to be the coming of the Holy Spirit of God upon Jesus’ apostles.

For many women around the world, menstruation can be a humiliating or physically painful experience because they don’t have any resources to help manage their flow.

Fr. Glenn: Being True

on June 2, 2019 - 7:10am

By Fr. Glenn Jones

Last week this column spoke of encouraging youth (and everyone, really) to make those often weighty (and constant) decisions of choosing between the good and the easy … between what is popular yet lacking, and that which is virtuous yet difficult ... though it possibly be even ostracizing.
