Father Pat begins this lesson with a context of the book of Nehemiah. He spoke about the effort to rebuild the land after severe loss. He expanded this idea to the city of Dresden after WWII. It is only recently that the main church has been rededicated after years of focused restoration. St. Paul informs the communal nature of our faith. We are the body of Christ and without everyone pitching in, the kingdom or in St. Catherine’s case, the parish community and infrastructure cannot be sustained. Listen now to the call of the Pastor, Father Pat Coakley.
