Lent: Preparing to Celebrate Easter

by | Feb 19, 2021 | Congregation of the Mission, Formation

Every Monday morning Fr. Bob Gielow, CM, offers his thoughts, prayers, and inspirations in the video series “Monday Morning Coffee Break with Father Gielow”. A calming presence and sense of humor are blessings we appreciate especially during these difficult times.

Fr. Gielow is part of the Mission Team of Vincentian Parish Missions, based in the Midwest USA.

From their website:

“The renewed Parish Mission Apostolate was established in 1974 by Fr. Carl Schulte, C.M. and Fr. Frank Crowley, C.M. with the goal of continuing St. Vincent DePaul’s purpose of doing missions in parishes…

The missioners from the Mission Center have been conducting “Parish Missions” throughout the United States and Canada. During that time they have conducted thousands of missions and have provided those parish communities with very unique and rewarding experiences which have made a tremendous impact on their lives and their communities.”

In this Coffee Break from February 15, Fr. Gielow talks about some reasons to “celebrate”, and offers some practical suggestions for Lent.
