“I, of course, want to first of all wish all our Mothers a most blessed and happy Mothers’ Day. May God Bless you all, and may we all appreciate the great gift and contributions of all the women and mothers in our lives, parish and society.
“I would also like to encourage everyone to consider a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows in Starkenburg next Sunday, May 15, as part of your celebration of this Holy Year of Mercy. What are we doing to grow in faith and devotion? A pilgrimage is a great way to honor Our Lady and do something practical and concrete in our spiritual life. A pilgrimage to Starkenburg certainly would not be a burden on anyone. I hope to see many of you there.”…Fr. Dave
