Sunday Homilies podcast Episode 2: "Implosion!"
Sunday, December 10, 2017

By Father Perry D. Leiker, pastor
"Advent. John the Baptist. Isaiah. Building a highway. Imploding. Letting God's grace in. That's what this season is about," Father Perry asks us in his homily for the second episode of our Sunday Homilies podcast on the Second Sunday of Advent. "So we continue our celebration and we lift up our words of faith as we express our creed together. What do we believe in, so that we can continue to walk this journey, especially during this season of Advent?" | EN ESPAÑOL
