La Ceiba, Honduras - Pan de Vida Retreat & Jesús en la Playa

Downtown La Ceiba, with a view of its central plaza.
On January 23 I headed back to the north coast of Honduras. The first event on the agenda was to help lead the Pan de Vida Eucharistic Youth Retreat for approximately 150 confirmation candidates (and others) from San Isidro Cathedral Parish. Fr. Gregorio, CFR and Br. Tobias, CFR travelled north from Comayagua to help with Masses, preaching, Confessions and music. Missioners of Christ (also based in Comayagua) brought along 15 lay missionaries to help organize, direct, speak and play music for the retreat.

Several of the Missioners of Christ team stayed for an extra couple of days following the retreat to participate in the advance planning of the next evangelization event scheduled to take place in La Ceiba: "Jesús en la Playa / Jesus on the Beach," an outreach to the many tourists who come to the north coast during Holy Week.
