Sorry, Carolyn, but some of this information is by now several years old, some individuals have retired or been replaced.

...all of your information is needed and vital- but how about "Fantastic Fridays" where you showcase a priest or lay person who is doing great things for life- maybe starting with a little memory of father taft :)

At C.1:Q.96, Nostradamus foretells of an iconoclastic prophet, using refined language to continually educate, who is raised in the Last Days.

Logmion is here and says "Bring Back Petrus Romanus"
