About 100 priests of Peoria, Illinois, came to a 4-hour workshop on Forming a Vocation-Friendly Parish! They embraced the idea of creating Vocation Ministries at their parishes. After the workshop, I surveyed the priests who with a large majority of 74% said they are Highly Likely to Start/Continue a Vocation Ministry at their parishes! Wow! I will return to Peoria to hold a Hundredfold Workshop for parishioners in January! I feel the soil being opened up and fertilized, getting ready for the Holy Spirit, right now!
It was icing on the cake to walk through a museum, dedicated to the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen, who was born, raised, and ordained in Peoria!
Archbishop Sheen, pray for the priests of Peoria!
