C.W.L. VERDUN council is holding a General Meeting followed by a Birthright Shower on Wednesday, April 14th at 1.00 p.m. c/o St. Thomas More Parish.

In keeping with the ongoing celebration
of the Year of the Priest, the Holy Father
wrote the following to the Clergy:

Dear Priests, the men and women of our
time ask us only to be truly Priests and
nothing more. The lay faithful will find in a
great many other people what they humanly
need, but in the Priest alone will they be
able to find the word of God that must always
be on his lips(cf. Presbyterorum Ordinis, n.4);
the Mercy of the Father, abundantly and freely
bestowed in the Sacrament of Reconciliation;
the Bread of new Life, “true food given
to men” (hymn for Corpus Christi”).
