DEAR PARENTS WITH SMALL CHILDREN:
Thank you! When you are here, the church is filled with a joyful noise. When you are here, the Body of Christ is more fully present. When you are here, we are reminded that our worship is not personal, but is a communal prayer where all the baptized participate mystically in the one Sacrifice of Jesus Christ. When you are here, there is hope that this church will continue to be filled for years to come. Thank you! God bless you! You are always welcome at St. Apollinaris!
