Faith Renewal Saturday


"Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples:  Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.." (Matthew 8:19)           


Have you thought about how your baptism should be affecting your everyday life?  Most of us don't.  It is through our Baptism that we come into a personal relationship with the Father , Son and Holy Spirit.  For most of us, this merits further investigation.

Saint William is providing a time designed to revive and strengthen the graces of Baptism and Confirmation.  It is called a "Faith Renewal Saturday" (FRS). 

It is Trinitarian

 The day focuses on our Baptism. It strengthens our relationship with the Blessed Trinity.  We can experience the Love of God the Father in a personal way.  Our relationship with Jesus the Son, as Lord and Savior, can be made stronger.  Also, we can be empowered by the Holy Spirit as we come into a deeper relationship with the Third person of the Blessed Trinity.
