the beginning of September means the beginning of a new year of Religious Education, a new year of sharing the Gift of Faith! I would like to reflect on why I believe that this is vital to our lifetime happiness. To do this I would like to use the analogy of a contractor building a house. All contractors know that you need a solid foundation in order to ensure that the house is structurally sound. I believe that the same is true with our life – our Faith foundation has to be strong. Thus I would like to ask you to think for a moment, regardless of where you are in your faith life now, how has your faith formed you and made you who you are today? I hope that it was the gift that your parents and friends shared with you. What if they hadn’t? What would you miss? Let us share the Gift so that the next generation doesn’t miss it either.
God’s continued Peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
