The Hunger Around Us

July 6, 2021

One of the many side effects of being trapped at home during a pandemic—according to the woman who sold us our new dining room set and chandelier—is refurnishing your home. “People are bored and have nothing else to do but stare at their living space,” the saleswoman told us. “Figured they might as well make […]

Back to the Basics

June 29, 2021

Ah, summer 2021. A time that will forever be remembered as the post-quarantine summer.

Humble Confidence

“Act, and God will act.” –St. Joan of Arc Spoiler alert, I am no Joan of Arc. I wouldn’t know the first thing about battling the English army in the 15th century. I’m not so sure Joan did either, actually. What I do know is that Joan, a young peasant girl in rural France, heard […]

A Season for Reclaiming Friendship

May 18, 2021

A couple of weeks ago, our parish began to move toward a more open mask and attendance policy.
