Dear Ladies and Friends of TASTE,
  • Last week, our Spiritual Director Fr. Larry Swink gave our final talk of the season: "Questions and Answers with Fr. Swink." He addressed many questions running from simple to highly complex including topics such as salvation, the Latin Mass, our current culture and the Church's role, false prophets, what it does and does not mean to be pastoral, Catholic identity in Catholic schools, and Father Swink's thought of the movie Father Stu.

  • We had a surprise visitor join us by zoom this week.  Susan Conroy thanked us for our prayers, gave us an update on her condition, her new ministry that she recently launched, and her upcoming series on EWTN which will be aired in September, 2022.  As usual, Susan was full of joy for our Lord and His/our Mother Mary.  LINK
