New on the Glenmary Website

Three new articles on the Glenmary website:
Both Brother Terry O'Rourke and Brother Bob Hoffman had a passion for Glenmary and dedicated their lives to serving the missions.  So I wrote and uploaded a short reflection on their passing.

Additional Come & See retreats are scheduled throughout the year. Our next retreat will take place on the weekend of April 7-9, 2017. Contact me for more information about this opportunity or others during the summer.

Br. Bob Hoffman

We ask for your prayers for Glenmary Brother Bob Hoffman who passed away this weekend.  Br. Bob, who was 89, professed his First Oath as a Glenmary Brother in 1952 meaning he was a Glenmary Brother for 65 years. Just two weeks ago I was visiting Br. Bob and he told me, "We need more vocations! I am able to go out and give some talks about Glenmary to school children whenever you want. Just tell me where and when." Br. Bob was passionate about Glenmary and his vocation until the end. 
"My good and faithful servant...
Come, share your master’s joy."
Br. Bob's funeral arrangements is listed here:

Br. Terry O'Rourke

Br. Terry O'Rourke passed away last night. He was a hard working and dedicated Glenmary brother and a true man of God.
I first met Br. Terry during his years of service in the Glenmary missions in Tennessee. He could work hard but also laugh hard. He always had a smile that included an Irish twinkle in his eye.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
