The Journey begins: Walking the path of faith

We begin our Journey of Faith tonight -- at least, this chapter of the journey that has been ours since birth. Please join me at St. Paul's tonight at 7 pm or at the end of St. Nicholas's appearance in the parish hall, whichever comes first. Welcome to the path (the photo at right is a path laid by 12th century monks in the Luberon of Southern France).
