Fr. Pavone of Priests for Life has some very good news to share with us for Holy Week:
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, officially announced today that he is founding a pro-life community dedicated to the formation and training of priests, deacons, brothers and seminarians who will devote themselves fully to the proclamation of the Gospel of Life. This initiative will be based in the diocese of Amarillo, Texas, under the authority and stewardship of Bishop John W. Yanta…his society of apostolic life, while drawing on the spirit and mission of the Priests for Life organization, will be a completely separate entity, known as Missionaries of the Gospel of Life.
Fr. Pavone announced that men considering joining this community can attend a discernment retreat he will conduct on June 24-26 in Amarillo. There will also be a seminariansd pro-life conference in Newark, NJ from August 16-21, during which Fr. Pavone will also discuss the new community. Those interested in the community may contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
