September & October 2021 Highlights


* New Service and Summer Schedule, as posted on our "Schedule of Services" page are going well and we will resume this new schedule in the Fall on September 26, 2021 upon Fr. James’ return from making a continuing education pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago the first three weeks of September.   The Camino de Santiago or The Way of St. James is an ancient pilgrimage route from various locations in Europe that meet at the Cathedral of St. James in Santiago in northwest Spain.  Many follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth.

* Pilgrim Prayer - Apostle Santiago, (St. James) chosen among the first, you were the first to drink the chalice of the Lord and you are the great protector of pilgrims: make us strong in faith and joyful in hope, in our pilgrimage journey following the path of Christian life and encourage us to finally reach the glory of God the Father. Amen
