Why We Come
Our French African Community
What I brought in with me
I parked at the top of the old dirt road, got out of my rental car, hefted the suitcase out of the back seat and headed down the driveway. It was good to be home.
After first knocking gently, I pushed the door open. Abby, my brother Tim's golden retriever struggled to her feet to greet me. In days past, she bounded to greet everyone, her tail wagging to beat the band. The old girl, however, like the rest of us is not getting any younger.
After being away from home a year you notice things. My brother recently replaced the old ratty carpeting and vinyl with oak floors. The place looked phenomenal. The floors glistened and a beautiful new oriental rug brightened the entryway.
This Lenten season, St Camillus and every other Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Washington and the Diocese of Arlington will have confessions available every Wednesday evening from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. If you have been reluctant to come to the sacrament, have been away for some time or just found it difficult to get to a Saturday afternoon confession time, this is a wonderful opportunity to re- connect with Christ and His Church.
