The Catholic Community of Stratford Welcomes Colin Petramale, Director of Discipleship! Greetings to each of you! As I begin this new journey, I ask first for your prayers. Second, it is my hope that, together, we can discover what Dorothy Day wrote about at the end of her autobiography; “We have all known the long loneliness, and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.” Please know that my prayer in beginning this journey is to discover the bonds of love, which we call the Holy Spirit, that are already holding us together. When we mine those riches of community and love, we can trust courageously that Christ is in our midst. I look forward to getting to know each of you in the coming weeks and months. Please feel free to say hello if you see me around! Peace.
