New Year’s Resolutions and Your Catholic Faith

With the New Year comes new hope for a new beginning. A new beginning is a perfect time to decide to strengthen your Catholic faith life.

The New Year is here and it’s that time of year when many people make New Year’s resolutions, oftentimes only to break them soon thereafter.
