The Joy of the Gospel - an Apostolic Exhortation by Pope Francis

With the generosity of a parishioner who wishes to remain anonymous, we are pleased to present a copy of The Joy of the Gospel to all who attend Easter Mass. We hope this will start an ongoing conversation on the topics addressed by this wonderful document.

See Fr. Walter's cover letter here.
