Audio files to listen to the recorded talks of Fr. Angelos and Fr. Martin on Resisting Happiness Book Study are now available. CD's are also available in limited quantities at the Parish Center. Look for upcoming information on Resisting Happiness Small Group Discussions in the near future.

We all know the things that will make us happy, but we don’t always do them. Why? We’re resistant. With his signature combination of the profound and the practical, New York Times bestselling author Matthew Kelly helps you learn why we sabotage ourselves, feel overwhelmed, set aside our dreams, and lack the courage to simply be ourselves . . . and how to start choosing happiness again.
