Quote of the Week

Once in our world, a stable had something in it that was bigger than our whole world. CS Lewis.


Happy & Peaceful New Year to You All. Fr. Leo Pyle



Travelling to Egypt.

One refugee in a world of refugees;

You will have no settled place Lord.

Where you can lay your head.

No one understands you fully.

No life of ease.

Yet we Lord.

Insecure as we are

In faith and temperament.

Ask you, the journeying one.

Travel with us.
