December 2011

Greetings from the Congo!  I am doing well, here in the Diocese of Tshumbe.  Last month I was asked to preach a retreat to the clergy of the diocese.  It went very well, and I felt the prayer support from my many friends.  Now the sisters of the diocese have asked me to do another one.  I’m debating whether I will have the time to prepare for it.

Would some of you have time to send mail to me via the postal service?  I have many friends in the USA with whom I correspond via email, but many others whose email I do not have.  If I were to receive regular letters from them, I could reply through the postal service.

I recently emailed Father Gerard LeComte, the pastor of St. John Eudes Church in Chatsworth.  That is a Church where I made many friends who have pledged to help me in the Congo.  I hope some day to return to Chatsworth and celebrate my thanksgiving Mass at the parish.  I will let you know whenever I hear back from Father Gerard.

Best wishes to all of you for a Joyeux Noël et bonne année.
