Some spring activity before we hopped into summer: April

19 July 2017 | by Bixby

The last six months have been a whirlwind in many ways, and we have had very little discretionary time to post anything about all that’s been going on here.

Praise and prayer

13 November 2015 | by Bixby

Thankful for a good couples’ meeting at Saint-Denis with 20 couples present. (Albert Xandry spoke on spiritual communion between husband and wife.)

Gladdened to see the Christian calm with which parents and friends can receive […]
