Looking ahead to Monday, December 16, I will be speaking at the Council Bluffs Downtown Kiwanis Club regular meeting.
On Friday, December 20, I will be leading an hour of reflection at St. Patrick's Parish here in Council Bluffs at 6:00 pm. I realize this on a Friday night just five days before Christmas. There are things to do, places to go, and people to see. I understand the sacrifices that may be required to invest in this one hour of time. All I can do is promise that I will do my best to make sure it is a valuable investment. I have given retreats, parish missions, and days of recollection on numerous occasions during the season of Advent. While this particular gathering is only one hour in length, we will put expectation and anticipation into a context that will enhance your Christmas experience. If you are in the Council Bluffs area, I hope you will consider joining us from 6:00 to 7:00 pm on December 20 at St. Patrick's Church. The address is:
St. Patrick's Catholic Church
