Our Chaplain, Monsignor Vaghi, will offer his thought-provoking spiritual reflections during his First and Third Thursday talks.

The theme this year is "Back to the Basics of the Faith."

The themes in past years, inspired by the writings of St. Francis de Sales, were "The Devout Life: A Snapshot" and "The Devout Life: An Ongoing Gift."
