Some wonder how God’s ordained and consecrated could be in need of such services. These people who serve God and the Church are people first, and they are vulnerable to illness and disease as another person is. (Addiction is a disease of the brain.) We welcome them warmly and are committed to walking with them on their recovery journey.

Feast of St. Polycarp
Our salvation does not come from obeying laws. Our salvation comes from Jesus Christ whose whole life was a life of love.
Our outer conduct – like that of the scribes and the Pharisees is worthless. What is needed is that we become poor in spirit – acknowledge that we are imperfect and that we are sinners.
Our holiness must flow from our love for one another. The salvation of the world came about through a man who did not keep all the laws of Moses – but who lifted them to a higher level and was willing to die for what he believed.
