If you did not sign up to help already, please do so.  If you have questions, ask Matthew or Ashley Prewitt or Fr. Paul. A schedule is appended below. Most of the events are open to all, including the talks by Fr. Patrick Reardon on the Psalms.

 QUOTATION – Insofar as you advance in love you will grow surer of the reality of God and of the immortality of your soul. If you attain to perfect self-forgetfulness in the love of your neighbor, then you will believe without doubt, and no doubt can possibly enter your soul. — Fr. Zosima in The Brothers Karamazov
