A warm welcome to you and other viewers who visit our Parish on the Net. We hope you'll find this "extension" of our Parish inviting and interesting. Please know that you are most welcome to visit us, literally, by sharing in weekend worship with us. If we can be of service to you, personally, please don't hesitate to e-mail and we will return a message a.s.a.p! An anonymous author has written, "There are two words used a great deal by Jesus in the Gospels. One is 'Come' and the other is 'Go'. It's no use coming unless you go, and it's no use going unless you come."
