Padre Pio relic on display? NOT THIS TIME
Most of you have joined us in past missions in the city. Welcome back! We can not do the mission without you! Many of you have been invited by friends, members of Regnum Christi, or by Doug Dewey, our indefatigable missionary! This year, our "oldest missionary" Bob Infanger, will come all the way from Florida to join the mission! He is one of several who will fly from points west for this mission! Who shall hold the record of farthest travel to mission? So far, a lady friend holds the record; she is coming from Vancouver, Canada! I can't wait to meet all our new missionaries!
For those of you coming to the mission for the first time, I encourage you to join a short zoom training on Wednesday night, September 21. Many are wondering what is expected of missionaries. How does it work? Who will be there? What is the objective of the mission? What am I supposed to tell people? Where will I go? All these questions will be answered on Wednesday. I will send out the zoom link on Monday night.
This will enable us to communicate with you further mission details as they develop. It will also help us anticipate mission materials necessary for our use, including the snacks!
Please invite your friends to join us. There are many souls out there waiting to be invited back to the Church. Many of them are thirsting, maybe some are hurting and they are seeking to be loved. How wonderful it will be for them to hear that they are indeed loved! Come! Let us take their hands and bring them to Him that will give them the peace they seek, and receive the love they need. He sits in wait.
