From the missions: Week 1 wraps up as the mission moves to McLennan

Father David Louch and I finished our first week of parish mission Wednesday night. The response of the people was most enthusiastic and the mission was experienced by both both preachers and people as a rich experience of faith. Thursday and Friday are transition days, and then we start in the town of McLennan. It is a small town and the seat of the archdiocese.

— Very Rev. Patrick Woods, C.Ss.R.
