As Jesus the Christ was Anointed: Priest, PROPHET, and King,
so may you live always as a member of his body...
from the Rite of Baptism
To be a baptized follower of Jesus Christ is to be a student-disciple of the Master.
To be a prophet is to study the texts of Scripture and the tradition of the Church.
A prophet so accurately describes the present that it becomes clear what needs to be done.
Each prophet of Jesus Christ will be called to speak a truth to a person, group, or the world
even if at the risk of suffering loss.
- Fr. Steve Wolf, Pastor
