What better way to enjoy a chilly All Hallows Eve than to gather around a bon fire and share a few stories. We gathered around the fire and throughout the weekend to share stories of who we are as Missionaries of the Precious Blood and what the community means to us as we welcomed five inquirers for our Discernment Weekend. The five included Matt Perez, Ryan Cornelissen, Christopher Hoffman, Michael Petterson, and Rob Hartnett. Also a special thank you to the Vocation Team for joining us: Fr. Vince Wirtner and Fr. Matt Link. Other members who joined us during the weekend included Fr. Joe Nassal, Fr. Mark Miller, Fr. Keith Branson, and Br. Daryl Charron. Fr. Timothy Guthridge, Director of Initial Formation as well as candidate Corey Knappe also joined us. The weekend was filled with a wonderful spirit of celebrating those who were present and also a great remembrance of those who have encouraged and supported each of us in our ministry.
