It Doesn't Have to Be that Way

The late great singer-songwriter Jim Croce wrote a song called It Doesn't Have to Be that Way, which was included in his album Life and Times, the album that included the hit Bad, Bad Leroy Brown.  Though not a Christmas song, It Doesn't Have to Be that Way gets a lot of airplay on mainstream radio during Advent.

Sunday XX and the Patrons of Fornelli

This Saturday's 5 PM Mass is our "Italian Heritage" Mass, in which we commemorate two patron saints (SS. Peter the Martyr and Dominic the Abbot) from Fornelli, Italy, the birthplace of much of our parish's ancestry.
