Other news

We are adding a new document called – “God-Spotting” page.  We will post a monthly prayer calendar starting with December.  (coming up on December 1st)

This is a good way to improve our spiritual life and prayer life.  Our webmaster has been active with the Cursillo group e mailings and some of the cursillo people wanted the webmaster to post it on the ICDA-US page.

Our Webmaster asked for permission from the creators of the “God-Spotting” and We do have permission. It was created for visitors and families and patients who came to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden, New Jersey.

It is our goal to share a joyful prayerful experience with you and your family. May you have a prayerful journey for the month of January.
