Jan 17 – An Evening with the Archbishop
Archbishop Michael Jackels visited informally with us this evening and shared the “Four Mission Priorities” of the Archdiocese of Dubuque with us.
The mission priorities are:
- Strengthening programs for on-going education in the faith.
- Enhancing the Sunday assembly for Holy Mass.
- Teaching stewardship as a way of life.
- Promoting vocations in general, and priesthood in particular.
- “You cannot love what you do not know.”
- “Love is like manure . . . if it sits it stinks and attracts flies but if it is spread it gives life and growth.”
- “Seminarians are like incense in church and garlic in cooking . . . you can never have too much.”
