Hope is Plentiful at Kenora Catholic

We sometimes forget that as individuals and communities we too move through the energy of those days. We are not spectators to the race that Jesus ran, to the life that Jesus lived, but participants. We are participants intimately involved in the Paschal Mystery of life.
