Director’s Message:
Every baptized Christian is called by God to share their gifts/talents in service of others. Some are called to be spouses, parents, single persons. Others are called to be priests, sisters, brothers, and deacons.

Through prayer, reflection and conversations with others, one discovers one`s dreams and how best to respond to the personal power of Jesus!
