Redemptorist missionaries recently hosted a retreat for 35 people representing the different communities with which they have been working in the Mississippi Delta.
“We are very happy with the turnout,” said Fr. Patrick Keyes. “We reflected on Pope Francis’ The Joy of the Gospel and our call to be joyful proclaimers of the Word of God, as well as reconciliation and the gift of the Eucharist before a closing Mass.”
Fr. Patrick and his team – Fr. Ted Dorcey, Fr. Scott Katzenberger and Fr. Thanh Nguyen – hope to find more leaders in the Delta to work with to set up firm structures to ensure that the ministry continues when the Redemptorists leave.
