Last Sunday in the Link we had a fun-filled discussion on Growing Together as God’s Family, in a new series entitled:

Describe a time in your life when you experienced real community and connectedness with other people. What’s the most critical “ingredient” of nurturing a healthy family?
In part 2 of FAMILY TREE, Fr. Michael Sorial discusses how family is STRENGTHENED BY HONESTY.
