I would like to welcome those who will be attending the CANADIAN AND USA WOMEN’S RETREAT, September 11-13. This retreat is for all Christian women from both Canada and the United States, I, Fr. Brian Gerber, will be your director for this retreat. I am looking forward to meeting all of you.
Please note that Archbishop Fulton J Sheen who was the voice of American Catholicism for nearly fifty years is in consideration for canonization. He was born in El Paso, IL, ordained a priest in 1919 and was ordained a bishop in 1951. He served the Diocese of Rochester, New York and as national director for the Propagation of the Faith. In addition, he was a participant at the Second Vatican Council and was on primetime television for many years with his show, “Life is worth Living.” He was also the author of numerous books, including Life of Christ and The World’s First Love.
Archbishop Sheen was probably one of the greatest evangelizers of our modern times. The well known, Billy Graham called Sheen the “the Great Communicator.” His teachings are very deep but still very accessible to the common person. Now, you are invited to come to Marygrove and learn more about the teachings of Fulton J Sheen. You can find many of Archbishop Fulton Sheen's videos on YouTube.
Thank you for choosing and supporting Marygrove, a very splecial and blessed place. May God bless you and keep you safe.
Fr. Brian Gerber
