01/24/16 Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

January 17, 2016 - Second Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

01/03/16 Epiphany of The Lord - Fr. Reggie

Christians used to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas, which spanned December 25-January 6. It was a time of rejoicing. Rejoicing over the presence of God in Jesus...
