Where is that GPS when I need it? : Our destiny is mapped with the compass of Conscience and Creed.

That GPS is handed to us! : Our Church lavishes Sacraments to set our eternal bearings.

People of Life leave no one by the wayside : Our lives matter – born and unborn – welcomed and revered on the Way.

Our Life, Our Sweetness and Our Hope : Our Lady points us to the Way on our journey.
