St. Petro's Small Community

Early on Saturday morning, seminarians Bryan and Gervas walked with me to celebrate Mass at the small Christian community of St. Petro.

Although it was early…a bit too early for me…I had to admire the beauty and stillness of the morning as we walked.

After Mass, the community updates its records, shares news and announcements, and plans for future community activities.
