What an amazing and long-awaited gathering April 25 at Sacred Heart Church in Staples! Over 160 women, men, missioners, clergy, religious, Bishop Patrick Neary and our friends from Homa Bay gathered to ‘Walk together in Christ’s love,’ which was the theme of this year’s event. Coming together after five years was an opportunity for collaboration, learning, sharing at table, praying together and celebrating the Eucharist as we learned about living out our baptismal call to mission by sharing God’s love with our brothers and sisters throughout the world. By living in love and acceptance with everyone we encounter, we create opportunities for living mission through openness, presence, service and community. Love changes everything.
