Nearing the end of the liturgical year, our attention
turns to our vigilant and prayerful preparation for the
return of Christ in glory.

Life is perhaps best described as a journey with a beginning and an end. As we come to the end of another Church year, we are invited to reflect on what is often referred to as the last things ─ judgment, heaven and hell. But we do so not in fear but in hope, for while our earthly lives will end, the promise of life eternal shines forth in Christ.

Thérèse: The Story of a Soul

Performed by Audrey Ahern
Sunday, December 10, 2017 7:00 pm at St. Patrick’s Church Admission by donation

A simple, yet profound, play about St.Thérèse of Lisieux. This one-woman Catholic theatre performance speaks directly to the audience with humor, grace, and humility. It is an honest, loving portrait of a real girl who struggled with anxieties but overcame these obstacles by trusting in God. Thérèse's honest, direct spirituality speaks powerfully to our busy culture. Audiences walk away with the encouraging message that anyone can become a saint.
