Fr. Vince Curtin hosted the first Commitment Weekend at St. Therese in Mooresville. Fr.

Unbeknownst to the parishioner, the customer in front of her graciously paid for all of her groceries before she left. Fr. Vince retold this story to the community and reminded the parish that a gift to the Forward in Faith, Hope, and Love effort is, in essence, a gift that will be paid forward to future generations. Families were inspired to commit more than $200,000 at Mass!
