Have you ever heard of The Barnabas Ministry? It is a true gift to our Diocesan priests. Fr. Blau, O.P. created this ministry knowing diocesan priests need to get away on retreat once a year, go on vacation and avoid burnout. As a true Dominican, Fr. Blau is an itinerant preacher and knows it is an honor to serve in this capacity. ‘Our Catholic priests are the pens that God uses to write his love letter to us.’ Through diocesan subsidy, this ministry allows Fr. Blau to cover for our often spread thin priests. Please pray for this beautiful ministry and Fr. Blau and all our priests.
