I know I am just getting started here, but I do have exciting news to share. I am leading a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in November, and I would love to have parishioners from Freeport join the trip. The pilgrimage is from Nov 7-18th, 2023.
This will be a great pilgrimage that will be a blessing for us all. As we read about the Sermon on the Mount, the Sea of Galilee and the hill of Calvary, it adds a whole new level of devotion and understanding to see and touch those places. How amazing it is to offer Mass in the Shepherd’s Cave in Bethlehem and to walk the stations of the cross through the streets of Jerusalem. Jesus can move powerfully in our lives when we give Him our time and effort and ask Him to move our hearts.
I hope you will consider coming with me, and I so look forward to seeing how God will use this pilgrimage of faith! Even if you can’t come, I will be sharing information back with you through the bulletin and social media.
Details about the pilgrimage can be found at: https://www.catholicpilgrimoffice.com/mcmorrow2023
Unfortunately, because of the short notice, we have to get the
registrations in by mid-July.
In Christ’s Peace,
Fr. Matthew McMorrow
