A MESSAGE FROM FATHER ARNOLD
April 9, 2019 
Improve yourself.
Be someone better but stay as yourself.
Forget who hurt you yesterday but don't forget who loves you everyday.
Forget the past that made you cry and focus on the present that makes you smile.
Continue to be an instrument of God's blessing to others!
Good day, God bless you! 
-Fr. Arnold
