We all have a longing to find happiness in our lives. But this happiness is circumstantial, dependent on other people, things, places, thoughts, and events. Joy on the other hand, is the abiding and pervasive sense of well being. This is the joy we were made for!

Come join us at Theology on Tap where Sr. Mariam O.P. from down under, will speak about the difference between happiness and joy, how we can claim this joy, and live this joy in our every day lives.
