We’ve had a busy weekend here in Birmingham. As you know, one of our central apostolates has been supporting the important work of EWTN. This weekend, they hosted a Family Celebration in the arena downtown, centered around the theme “The Life and Legacy of Mother Angelica.”
If you didn’t get a chance to join us, we can tell you that it was a lively event! Inspirational speakers, book signings, family-friendly events, and activities for kids certainly made for a packed weekend.
Our friars participated by:
- Celebrating Mass
- Hearing Confessions
- Appearing on live TV and radio broadcasts and, of course
- Greeting the many families in attendance!
Also this month, Fr. Leonard celebrated a special Mass for students at St. Francis parish, which is located next to the University of Alabama.
Both of these events remind us how blessed we are to participate in the mission of supporting the New
Evangelization–both in person and through the media. It is our prayer that we can be instruments of God’s love and truth to each person that we encounter.
We pray that you have a wonderful beginning of the fall season.
