Fr. Delcambre Update
This upcoming week, I will be working at Mundeline Seminary in Chicago, IL. There I will rejoin the Institute of Priestly Formation with whom I have been an adjunct faculty member for the past nine years. The Institute (IPF) has been incredibly valuable in my spiritual development as a priest. The institute exists to assist all diocesan priests who desire to grow in their spiritual life.
This upcoming week, we will be serving over 90 priests from all over the country as they are learning the art of spiritual direction through receiving direction in a silent directed retreat. Please pray for all the priests who will be attending, that they may be refreshed and renewed with a more profound sense of God’s particular love for them.
We often pray for vocations here at Sacred Heart. This week is an indirect way that yo, as a parish, get to serve the church in Her call to raise up future priests. Many of the men that IPF serves are vocation directors and pastors. As we encourage growth in them, they become more equipped and receive encouragement to help others including seminarians and other priests. If you would like to know more about this Institute, go to http://priestlyformation.org
