You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Ave maria

Language: Latin

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus
et benedictus fructus ventris tui:
Jesus Christus,
Filius Dei vivi.
Et benedicta sint
beata ubera tua,
quae lactaverunt regem regum
et Dominum Deum nostrum.
