Fr. Joel Homilies

It’s never too late for Jesus. The whole world will know that Jesus is Lord when he returns on the last day to raise the dead. That’s what Christian funerals are all about. But you can experience the Resurrection now by inviting Jesus in. (2 Apr 2017)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Never underestimate the power of God! The Risen savior changes our lives forever. Just like it changed the life of the little rabbit who started leaving colored eggs for people to find. Learn to live the Resurrection every day, every week. [AUDIO]
