Other Important information
Food for Thought on
Ultimately we all answer for our life before God. The priest and the homily cannot be the reason you go to church or not, service requirements cannot be the reason either. The time involved shouldn't be the reason you don't go, it has to come from your own value of your relationship with Jesus and the Church He founded. We really take a look at this in our program but ultimately it's for you to consider (and I always rely on that little nudge from the Holy Spirit)
