On the Feast of Corpus Christi, Fr. Riccardo preached at the 10 AM Mass honoring parish members completing their high school or college studies. Fr. John asked the graduates and all congregants whether they have come to know Jesus. For those students about to depart for college in the fall, Fr. John encouraged them to pray daily, to stay close to Mass, to read His word, and to find some way to serve. Fr. John remarked that true greatness comes from knowing the Lord, from loving Him, and from making Him known to others.
