It is a great privilege for me to lead parish missions. Preaching at all of the weekend Masses to get parishioners fired up for an inspirational and motivational week fills me with great joy. People of faith strive for growth during the season of Lent. Part of my ministry is to help them accomplish that desired growth.
My presentation style is a dynamic combination of catechetical teaching and storytelling wrapped in practical applications for living the Christian life. This parish mission will be near the half-way mark of the Lenten journey. Put it on your calendar now and plan to join us at 1 Bluff Street in Council Bluffs.

We will focus on the theological virtue of faith. What do we believe? Why do we believe it? How does it impact the way we live? As we pray the Creed each weekend, do we truly ponder what it is we profess to believe? What are the ramifications of putting our faith into action? What is the potential of bringing the transforming love of Jesus Christ to the world?

We will focus on the theological virtue of hope. Life can be tough at times. How do we maintain hope through the difficult circumstances of life? This night is always a popular topic. Our world needs hope!

We will focus on the theological virtue of love in the context of healing. We experience God's love in many ways. Some of the more prominent ways we see this love is in the sacramental life of the Church. We experience grace, mercy, and healing in our own lives through the sacraments. Then we are equipped to go out to the world and bring Christ's love, mercy, and healing to others because of what we ourselves have experienced.
Each evening presentation will last one hour. (Start times will be announced soon.) I am already praying for God to move powerfully in our midst during these days. I hope you will join me in that prayer. Please put these dates on your calendar and plan to join us if you live in the area. I promise you that God's grace will not disappoint.
