Posted on June 14, 2017 in: General News

MASS AND COMMUNION ETIQUETTE   One day, each of us will stand before the Lord for our personal judgment.  We will be longing to spend eternity praising God.  There will be an examination of our lives.  Wouldn’t it be great if, in our “re-run,” when we saw ourselves in Mass, we were praying, singing, and adoring Him with all our hearts?
