Diocese of Rapid City, South Dakota

The Rapid City and Ft. Pierre, South Dakota Hundredfold Workshops were a huge success! With only 22,000 Catholics in the diocese of Rapid City, 70 parishioners representing 2/3 of the 64 parishes were in attendance and fired up to promote vocations to the priesthood, religious life, and sacramental marriage!

EWTN Day #3 - EWTN Bookmark taping with Doug Keck

When I arrived back to my room after EWTN Live, my phone had blown up with calls, texts, Facebook posts, and emails. It was great to hear affirmation from so many of you! The best was that my two teenagers were jumping up and down, taking pictures of the TV, and posting it to Snapchat or text. In their eyes, I was finally cool. I thought Now I can retire! I have reached the pinnacle of existence!

EWTN Day #2 - EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch Pacwa

I walk into the EWTN studio at 6:30 for the 7:00 live taping of EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch Pacwa. Live! Like a two-second delay only! If I mess this up, I am toast! I am trying to keep those thoughts out of my head as I walk through the studios, but then I pass the control room for the show and see this picture of MY BOOK up on the screens! Surreal, I tell you! When I said that to Fr. Mitch, he said, “Oh, no! This is really happening!”

EWTN Day #2 - The Shrine

Two summers ago while spending 8-10 hours a day writing the first edition of Hundredfold, I went through a major time of discernment, asking God if he really wanted me to write this book, start a website, speak at the Serra Rally, and do the million other crazy things that were put in front of me. Do you know that Mother Angelica, too, questioned all the tasks that God was putting in front of her while starting EWTN? The clear answer to her and me was YES! Do Whatever He Tells You!

EWTN Day #1

I arrived a day early at EWTN to get settled in and begin my adventure steeped in prayer at the EWTN chapel, but just seeing the EWTN sign had me jumping up and down like a kid arriving at Disney World! The satellites are huge! I had to keep reminding myself that I was supposed to be prayerful while here.

Testimonials

I think this book will do so much good. I know you wrote it with much prayers and love, and it is a product of your dedicated works in the ministry of vocation. You have blessed our vocation office and the vocation ministry at St Cecilia and here in the Archdiocese abundantly! May the Lord bless you and He abundant fruit to your work!

Fr. Dat Hoang, Former Vocation Director for Archdiocese of Galveston Houston

Vocations to the Priesthood and religious life can only evolve in a culture which nurtures a positive response to God’s calling whether that be in the home, school or church. Without a doubt, a robust parish vocation mission is the perfect means of cultivating such an environment in all three places. Rhonda Gruenewald has developed a full proof method of creating and sustaining a bountiful vocation mission in every parish. Her work is truly the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Margo P. Geddie, Vice President for Communications for Serra US 

This book will be a useful tool for parishes in our Archdiocese and beyond. We frequently have pastors and parishioners who ask for help to initiate or revitalize their parish vocation committees. Having a manual coming from a parish’s practical experiences and with electronic forms available on the website will enable us to respond to their needs. We look forward to having it as a resource as we continue to build a culture of vocations for the sake of our Church and society.

Sr. Anita Brenek, CDP, Associate Director, Office of Vocations Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston

To have all of these activities in one well thought out piece with such prayerful consideration and documented practice is a lovely example of Divine inspiration paired with the willingness of servant's hearts in answering His call. This is a beautiful example of what can be done with the collaboration of gifts bestowed to us while listening to the call of our Lord. It will become a gift to many in seeking a clear path to promoting vocations. "Well done, my good and faithful servant" Matthew 25:21. It is a masterpiece!

Anne Shepherd-Knapp, Chairman, Serra US Vocation Committee Deputy Governor, District 10 President, The Serra Club of Spring-1960 Area

The workshop provided practical steps to address a pressing need in our diocese. The wide gamut of possibilities allows large and small parishes to DO something. Rhonda is good at responding to questions and has lots of practical experience, both positive and negative.

Very Reverend Jay Peterson, Vicar General Diocese of Great Falls-Billings

The most beneficial aspects of the workshop are the book, the website and downloadable materials, and the practical nature of “how to”. You were also encouraging in the many ways pastors/priests are trying to encourage vocations.

Monsignor Mark Merdian, Diocese of Peoria, Illinois
