AMA (ask me anything) with Father James


Do you have questions about Catholicism, prayer, the Bible, Church happenings, and your very own local priest?  See what we’ve learned from the questions people have submitted.  Questions such as: when to fast before attending Mass to Why does mass attendance on Sunday matter? Can’t we just go during the week on the day that’s most convenient? What if we have to work on Sunday?
