Wonder Woman and the Eucharist (Guest Column from our Seminarian Peter Scheck) I’ve got a confession to make. Ever since the movie “Wonder Woman” came out in 2017, I’ve had a huge crush on Gal Gadot, the actress who plays the main character of the film. I think she’s beautiful.

Fatima, Portugal is one of the most revered sights in the Roman Catholic religion.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, This weekend, May 18-19, our diocese will take up the Catholic Relief Services Collection. Your support of this collection serves as Jesus in disguise in some of the most marginalized communities in our world. In rural communities in Afghanistan, for example, children have limited access to education because of distance and the danger of commuting to public schools. In the remote village of Ghor,...
