Besides all the activity in our parish, two other parishes have contacted me about Landings, St. Rose of Lima and Our Lady of Snows are considering implementing the program. This week, 3 members of the parish counsel of St. Rose of Lima came to observe what we do in our sessions. It was a pleasant visit.
Eddie, Paula and I are in a pro-life ministry, “Save the Holy Innocents,” started by a parishioner and his wife from St. Teresa of Avila.
At our last monthly meeting, we had a visit from +Thomas Mar Eusebius Bishop of Parassala, our group has decided to sponsor two seminarians from his diocese Brother Akhil M. and Nitheesh Simon. The bishop has 16 men in his seminary. Please keep these men in your prayers.
Besides “Landings” and “Save the Holy Innocents,” I am in a small faith sharing group each week at St. Gall and I am a Benedictine Oblate connected to Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in Phoenix AZ. Sr. Lydia came this month to give us a Lenten retreat that ended with Taizé prayer. We got inspiration for our Lenten journey. As a group, we all thought in this world of confusion, hatrred and evil, we should follow our Lord’s command to witness by our love, kindness, and gentle spirit and follow his commands. Here are some pictures of the various groups.
