Advent-Christmas Schedule 2017-2018

ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS AT ST. JUDE,

2017-2018

Pope Francis says:
For the great human family it is necessary to renew always the common horizon toward which we are journeying. The horizon of hope! This is the horizon that makes a good journey. The time of Advent that we begin again today returns us to the horizon of hope, a hope that does not disappoint because it is founded on the Word of God. A hope that does not disappoint, simply because the Lord never disappoints! He is faithful!
