The Eckstine Family, Alvarez Family, Madi Dold, Sid Savoie, Sarah Carroll whose names I cannot say I know in writing very well and may be mispelling and maybe someone I am forgetting are being commissioned at a commissioning mass at Our Lady of the Bayous convent and retreat house which Family Missions is in the process of acquiring from the French Dominicans and other interested parties. I am not attending and do not work with Family Missions Company but I have seen them meeet for prayer and study, work on projects here and at the convent in terms of renovation and infrastructure. I wish them well and commit them to all of your prayers and good wishes.
My own life in the missions and in all aspects of life related to this is in the position of a long journey largely left behind but I can wish them well as they set forth. It is a challenging and worthy effort at life for God, oneself and others.
I have attended most but not all of these commissionings in the past. Life is a journey with many changes along the way. Today I post them in my blog as an important event and move on.
