Missioners of Christ Labor Day Retreat
Fr. Herald was in the Richmond, Virginia area over Labor Day Weekend with about 35 young adults (including married couples with small children) for the annual Missioners of Christ retreat. It was blessed and inspiring weekend that included Mass and Eucharistic Adoration each day, praise and worship music and talks on the theme of "Reviving the Legacy of Blessed John Paul II." Our time together helped to deepen our relationship of friendship and collaboration that has spanned the last decade and included joint efforts in both Honduras and Africa. I feel very blessed to have two Missioners of Christ, Maynor Ballesteros and Dr. William Stallings, joining me on the upcoming Africa missionary journey.
Thanks to Aaron Hostetter, youth minister at Holy Trinity Parish in Norfolk, VA, and participant on the retreat, the recorded talks are available online at:
