This weekend is the start of the parish mission at St. Peter's Parish in Council Bluffs. This will be my first time to preach at St. Peter's Church. I look forward to seeing many of the Saint Albert families at Mass, and I also look forward to meeting many others not connected to the school.
I will give a one hour presentation each evening on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday beginning at 7:00 P.M. (March 16, 17, & 18)
The next weekend I will be leading a retreat for some of the Diocese of Des Moines deacons and their wives. This will be my first time to gather with this group, and it will be my first time to visit Perry, Iowa.
Please keep me in your prayers as I prepare for these Lenten events. Be assured of my prayers for all of you. I pray that your Lenten journey is bearing abundant fruit.
