The first son in today’s Gospel said he would do his father’s bidding, but did not. The second son balked at first, but then repented and did as he was asked. What service is God calling me to do? Which son am I more like?
Come discover inspiration and fulfill your spiritual desires, in our growing Parish Library. October is the month Pope Francis has designated as a time to focus on and celebrate the family. We have a nice collection in that category. A category not always easily noticed and to the far left, under the Bible/Reference section, is ‘About the Bible’.
If you have not returned your book(s), please do so in a timely manner in the turquoise bin (6 weeks is our guideline).
We accept only Catholic materials. No secular books or magazines.
