CD of the Month

Fr. BarronCD of the Month
We have several new cd’s in the Narthex display case!
You might be interested in My Beloved Son: Meditations for Lent by Fr. Robert Barron.   

Fr. Robert Barron offers five sermons on the spiritual discipline we must cultivate in the Lenten season, a discipline centered in Christ. These meditations cover topics such as finding our identity in God, prayer as the key to mission, our thirst for God, how to end our alienation from God, and how to joyfully embrace the way of happiness.
