I never imagined my blog being an archive of memories, but as I prepare to lead another retreat for the staff, I looked back trying to figure out when we had done this. As I reviewed my blog entries, I quickly remembered that my life was quite hectic at that time. I left Rapid City at 3:00 am and drove to Cheyenne, worked a few hours, and then drove to St. Louis overnight so I could preach at a Memorial Mass the next morning. I am not sure I could do that now.
You can enjoy many more photos from Rapid City, including the Cathedral and the Chapel in the Hills by going to September 2017 posts.
This will be my second retreat post-pandemic closures. I am excited to dive into some topics near and dear to my heart.
1. The Call to Discipleship
2.Disciples Make Other Disciples
3. God Promises to Be With Us Until the End of the Age
I cannot even begin to express how happy this makes me. Leading retreats has been my favorite part of ministry. It is an opportunity for people to step away from their regular routine and listen to God's voice. I get to play a small role in creating the atmosphere for us to experience the movement of the Holy Spirit among us. Wow! I am blessed indeed.
Enjoy the photos from four years ago. I'll try to capture new ones in a few weeks. To the staff of St. Patrick's Parish--I look forward to seeing you soon.
