Happenings @ St. David's

When have you heard the voice of Jesus? When you were in need? Jesus speaks to us in and through the voice of love and we are called to carry that voice from St. David’s out into the world. 

Blessings for you this week and prayers for our election.

Faithfully yours,

Fr. Will
