Fr. Ray Carey

We want to thank Fr. Ray Carey for spending time with all of us at St. Patrick. He gave the homily at all of our Masses and also gave two incredible workshops on Monday & Tuesday evening. If you missed any of his visit, or you want to listen again, you can, right here in this post. We have included audio players for each of his talks as well as links and references for further study. — Fr. Eric has recorded a special introductory message to these talks as well.
