Our first Serra Club of North Columbus meeting of ’22 was filled with many graces! We were blessed by Fr. Jeff Rimelspach offering Holy Mass in St. Rose of Lima’s chapel within The Pontifical College Josephinum. We inducted several new Serra Club members who are excited to join us in our mission: #praying4vocations! Being within the walls of this seminary enhanced the meaning of our mission! Please join us and pray for vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life!
The wisdom shared by Fr. Brett Brannen at our December meeting was truly spirit-filled. Our Seminarians at The Pontifical College Josephinum are blessed to have Father as their Spiritual Director. Do you know someone discerning? Buy them this book by Fr. Brannen for Christmas! https://vianneyvocations.com/…/to-save-a-thousand-souls/ Fr. Brannen left us many pearls of wisdom to ponder on and we wanted to share a few with you: ‘God can do anything, to anyone, at anytime!’ ‘If you want to help people die well then you must help people live well!’ ‘Jesus is always coming to us; in history, in mystery and in majesty!’ ‘Love is a bright light which truth can pass. Truth isn’t a philosophy yet a person. The person is Jesus.’
What a great day to be a Serran in Columbus! We had our monthly meeting with over 70 members who were inspired by Beth Vanderkooi, Executive Director. Greater Columbus Right to Life. Thank you, Beth, for you all you do to protect the unborn. God only knows which of those unborn are called to the priesthood or religious life someday!
