USCMA’s July Mission Monthly

monthly header - june 2014
Dear friends,
 
We hope that you have had a chance to enjoy the last few weeks, whether they have provided you with an opportunity to take a vacation or spend time with family and friends. As summer begins each year, Fr. Jack initially takes time for an annual retreat, followed by weekends “on the road” preaching mission appeals. At the time of his priestly ordination 50 years ago, Fr. Jack took as his motto, “Christ sent me to preach the Gospel”. Preaching mission appeals is an enriching way of fulfilling that dream and bringing Christians to a greater awareness of what it means to be “missionary disciples”. Participating in various conferences, such as that of the American Society of Missiology, he was able to nourish that challenging dream. Meanwhile Stephen completed facilitating a seven-week faith sharing group at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington, DC on Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium and shared with the participants some of his personal experiences while on mission, as well as some experiences from USCMA’s members. Click here to read this month’s edition of USCMA’s Mission Monthly!
