Off to Retreat

I'm leaving tomorrow morning (Sunday, August 22) for St. Francis Retreat House in Easton, PA for a week-long retreat. I will be back in Cincinnati late Friday evening and back in the office on Monday morning, August 30.

Back home from a week-long vacation

I've returned to Cincinnati after spending a week in Peoria, IL visiting family. It was a good week--relaxing, enjoyable, and fun. The highlight was a surprise birthday party for my older sister. We actually managed to set it up without her even getting suspicious. It was a good gathering and a fine way to end the vacation.

I also helped out at the parish where I grew up. I had a couple of Sunday Masses last Sunday (August 8) and this morning. It was good to celebrate with my home community.

Now it's back to work for a very busy week including two days of teaching introductory moral theology to the Postulants. I look forward to the week and the challenge of getting a lot done before I leave on retreat next Sunday.

Stan comments on new video

Fr. Don, Thanks for this excellent video! Watching it was sort of like a mini retreat. The scenery is magnificent... and the videographer was pretty good too! Watching the video in Florida's 90+ degree heat and 100% humidity was absolutely refreshing! Thank you for sharing your journey.

Video of the Meeting in Colorado

Forty-some Friars from five English speaking countries met for five days at St. Malo Retreat Center in the mountains above Denver, CO. The setting was beautiful as you can see in the video. The gathering was very worthwhile. There was a good spirit (Spirit) among the Friars and good fraternity.
