October 2, 2022 Update: Mask use in our parish church is now optional but recommended. Masks are recommended in order to protect the more vulnerable in our community, like children and those with compromised immunities.

He was considered the greatest preacher of his time, journeying across Italy, calming strife-torn cities, attacking the paganism he found rampant, attracting crowds of 30,000 people at a time.
