I am visiting the Glenmary missions in Western Arkansas and meeting with a couple of prospects who are interested in joining Glenmary Home Missioners. I think that the visits to the missions is a fabulous way for someone discerning a vocation with Glenmary to get to experience a little of the mission lifestyle and to connect with the people in the areas where we serve. For me too, it has been great to return to the place of my former mission assignment and participate in the weeks activities including doing some home visits, participating in the Holy Week talks, tonights washing of the feet and tomorrows living Way of the Cross. Saturday night will culminate the weeks activities in the mission with a number of people coming into the church and others receiving the sacrament of communion and confirmation. Pray for those men discerning with us.
