Chaplain’s Corner Padre Zibby Jonczyk The third Sunday of June is a special day. A day dedicated to our fathers, a day when we are asked to remember with love and gratitude that special man in our lives.

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Christopher Willis I am a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs. It’s interesting that that would be the first sentence in an article that addresses respect.

The idea is to promote discussion that can lead toRead More
