The Final Day of the Mission in Lynchburg

The final day of the parish mission here in Lynchburg has arrived.

It has been a wonderful experience here with a dedicated group of Catholics. Here's a photo a snapped last night:

We focused on the Eucharist last night, talking about the table of sacrifice, the table of nourishment, and the table of reconciliation. The sessions concluded with a ritual in which the parishioners were invited to reverence the altar.

I am grateful for this opportunity to have spent time with these Catholics excited about learning more about what it means to live a Catholic sacramental life. Two more sessions today. We are focusing on the meaning of the sacrament of Confirmation in our lives. Then we will talk about what this mission experience has meant in their lives.

Looking forward to another day of faith sharing here in Lynchburg.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
