A message from Fr. David 

There are seven "I AM" sayings from John's Gospel.  As we read these sayings, and as we learn about these famous words and stories, we will better understand why a personal encounter with Jesus is what our Gospel readings have been about through our Lenten journey.  These are life-changing messages for those who encountered Jesus. Can they change our lives?....  Click here to read the entire message from Fr. Lynch +
