Thank you all the members of the Africa Union 55 committee who worked so long and hard on bringing about the glorious day we had last weekend. Their celebration was for all of us. It was an explosion of grace, of the signs of Christ in our midst. It inspires all of us to sing and dance because of the goodness of God. Thank you all who participated in sharing your faith with us. Let’s work together so that we can celebrate more the gifts of our parishioners, wherever they come from, whatever is their tradition, the human glory of Christ.

What an incredible evening! We had over 700 people come out to venerate the sacred relics. What an incredible gift to our parish to be in the company of our Heavenly friends. Thank you to Jeff Thorne for capturing in photos this grace-filled evening.
