Rejoice, 'Come, Share the Wine!' - REAL Life!

As part of our Pastoral Plan we took the first step of our Religious Education And Liturgy (REAL) - Life program.
What is the REAL- Life program? For those not attending the 9:15 a.m. Mass, you may know that ‘Sunday School” (SS) for children up to grade seven has moved its time. Formerly SS was held between the two morning Masses, now it is held during the 9:15 Mass.
