Whenever we do anything at St. Louis, we ask ourselves, "What's the goal of this and how will this bring the gospel to light at St. Louis?" We've gotten away from the goal of this podcast and we're going to use the beginning of 2019 to get back to our mission.
Beginning this year, we'll start featuring parishioner stories of God's grace. When we share our stories, we reveal God's hand at work in our lives. And when we share how God influences our lives, we encourage others to examine their own lives for God's grace.
So what's your story? What has God done for you? Maybe He's done more than you know...
