Newbie here...
« on: August 06, 2006, 09:07:45 PM »
Found this site purely by accident this afternoon while looking up something for Vacation Church School and while I poked around for a while it looked like a good place to stay for a while!  ;D  Little about me- I converted dec of 02. long story- but it really was sort of by accident. i kinda fell into it and loved the faith. baptised my 2 kids, then myself and my husband followed a few years later. moved 2 times since then and my "rock" has always been my parish. this last move was a permanent one- we bought our first home. and my current parish is great. i wouldn't trade the priest and my people i have met for the world!  ;D see you all around........

Welcome aboard!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

G'day!
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
