Feed Your Mind

We are never too old to learn.  That statement also applies to our Catholic faith, our customs, our beliefs, and our practices.  An easy way to gain greater perspective on our faith is to pick up one of the cd's available for sale in church.  I have listened to most of them and can personally attest to their value.  You have noticed that some of them have been highlighted in the parish bulletin.  Those notices are meant to help present these topics that come to us from Lighthouse Catholic Media.  Check out the titles.  Some more than others may appeal to you.  Just pop the cd in your cd player and enjoy.  A great place to listen would be in your car as you motor around town or on a trip.  Take advantage of this great opportunity.
