FINDING TRUTH WHEVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "Just as some might have thought the Church simply a part of the Roman Empire, so others might have thought the Church only a part of the Dark Ages.  The Dark Ages ended as the Empire had ended, and the Church should have departed with them, if she had been also one of the shades of the night."  from G. K. Chesterton's, "Everlasting Man."

QUOTE II:  "A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it."  same source.


Chuck Chalberg who will be putting on a Chesterton play here at the parish for our 90th anniversary wrote THIS article on Chesterton and evolution.

Go HERE for the iTunes store to listen to the podcast "D*mn Near" and listen to the episode, "Damn Near Recognizable" if you would like to hear an interview with the person who restored our mosaic.  She talks about the mosaic and her work on it about half way through the interview.

The Brick Street Jazz and Wine Festival is coming up SOON!  Go HERE for more details.

 Here is Sr. Iliana:

David did and excellent job on the talk about the icon. It was very informative. Joe did a great job planning the return day of adoration.
