“As Catholics, we are all pilgrims on the journey, and that journey is holistically human: body, soul and mind. Just like I believe that every Catholic should have a good spiritual guide or director in their life, I also believe that every Catholic can benefit greatly from the help of a good counselor at certain times in their life, certain points on their journey. It is always helpful to have someone professionally-trained and faith-filled who can give practical and clear help in times of struggle and crisis. I highly recommend that you speak to one of the wonderful counselors of Rejoice Counseling Apostolate.”

– Fr. Khoi Le, Pastor
