When people think of the Catholic Church, they often picture a crowd of cardinals, processing into St. Peter’s.But this too, is the Catholic Church, thousands
of lay people, coming together to praise God, do good, and welcome anyone who wants to join them.
Thank you all for making this wonderful day possible.
