CIN companions, croppedOn November 9 and 10th, Cincinnati Companions gathered at St. Charles Center with Fr. Jerry Stack, C.PP.S., to hear and reflect on the life of St. Gaspar and his relationship with the lay persons of his time (ristretti). As we heard about Gaspar’s Mission Houses, the qualities of a missionary and the various associations of lay persons, we were challenged to take Gaspar’s vision, be open to it, and to adapt it to the signs of our times.
