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........

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