I'm off for the weekend. Training 25 parish leaders to facilitate the discernment of others - either one on one or in small groups. It's an interesting group - about half are bi-lingual (English-Spanish). Most are from a single parish - St. Isidore's in Bloomington which is developing its own Called & Gifted teaching teams but I've also got participants flying in from Iowa and Martha's Vineyard.
Gustavo, who is one of our Spanish Called & Gifted teachers is flying in from Galveston to train the group with me and working toward eventually offering the training himself in Spanish which will be very exciting! All the dioceses that have talked to us lately want implementation in both languages so it is critical that we expand our Spanish language capacities.
Anyway, such trainings are always fun - but very demanding so I'd appreciate your prayers. Back Sunday after which I will not leave town for a whole month.
Imagine . . .
Meanwhile Fr. Mike will be offering an Advent mission at Sts. Simon & Jude Cathedral in Phoenix Monday through Wednesday of next week. It's sure to be good so if you are in the Phoenix area, come and join in.
