JUST A THOUGHT: During the St. Robert parish May Procession last week, Father Matt Guckin was the guest homilist. Father spoke of the incredible things Mary was asked to accept and believe. He then spoke of how her faith in things considered “incredible” allowed her to do things that were considered impossible.
He challenged each of us to
“Believe the incredible so we can do the impossible!”
What a wonderful challenge for us all!
SJR SCHOOL: PROUD OF OUR PAST,
FOCUSED ON THE FUTURE,
MAKING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE!
