First parish mission

Fr. Greg

From March 25 to 29, Fr. Greg Murray conducted his first parish mission. It was held at Good Shepherd Parish in the Black Burn Hamlet part of Ottawa. Fr. Greg was happy with the results. Giving a mission on a weekend with all the other parish activities may not be the most fortuitous moment to give a mission, but a good number of parishioners participated. At the community meeting of April 5, Greg spoke of the experience. With a feast of Mary on March 25, he had built the mission around the three members of the Holy Family. As he said, “Having done one now, it gives me incentive and courage to look for further missions in other parishes. Missions allow one much more opportunity to build on a spiritual theme than the ten-minute Sunday homily.”
