The Three Great Loves – Take some time to cultivate love in your life. Based on the Great Commandment, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength… You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” Fr. Frank Desiderio, CSP, uses a multi-media presentation to explore how we can love God, receive God’s love and extend that love to others, including ourselves. Join us Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night from Dec. 10 to 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the church. Fr. Frank is a member of the Paulist Fathers, an order which ministered at St. Peter’s for over 100 years. His presentation is organized by the St. Peter’s Paulist Associates, a lay group which meets monthly for faith sharing and to pray for the Paulist’s missionary work in North America.
