This is an inspiring film about the life of Father Patrick Peyton. Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C devoted his priestly life to spreading the devotion to Mary and encouraging family prayer, especially the Rosary. He used radio, television, film and 540 Rosary Rallies worldwide to accomplish his mission. Today, Father Peyton's message that The Family that Prays Together Stays Together" is still well known around the world. Father Peyton's cause for sainthood was officially opened in 2001 and he is currently named Venerable, hopefully he will soon be known as a Saint for Family Prayer! Please share this message and plan to watch this wonderful film with your family. Thank you! Courtney

Sermon 04 23 2021.docx
I take the Lord at His word. Faith is a gift from God. Without it there would be no life. And our work, to be fruitful and beautiful, has to be built on faith. Love and faith go together. They complete each other.
