Back to earth for just a minute: we have surpassed our pledge goal for the San Francisco Oratory. Our hope was to raise $220,000, and thus far we have received pledges of $268,520. I’m quite encouraged by the hope and enthusiasm this idea has received. Many pledges of financial and prayer support have come from folks in San Francisco, so I know we will receive a warm welcome in the City when we arrive (God willing).
There are a few details yet to be worked out, but some of them have worked out, and I hope we will be able to begin building our priestly community this summer. Keep the prayers coming, and let us all beg God’s continued grace this Lent, that He prosper the work of our hands according to His good pleasure.
