learning to preach

Dear Family and Friends,
This weekend I had the opportunity to preach all four masses at a local parish.
Phew! Four is a lot!

But it sure was a learning experience. Preaching in large churches is no easy task – you have to speak slower and louder.
All in all, it made me understand a little what Jesus must have felt like after preaching that Sermon on the Mount of his – tired, but energized too!
Thankfully, there were donuts after each mass. That kept me going.

Happy feast of Blessed John Paul II. He was such a great gift to all of us. I’m hoping to take a group of fathers and their sons to his canonization (when he becomes a “Saint”) April 27th next year. Can’t wait!
May God bless you,
Deacon Kevin
