I was just in the snow in Manchester, New Hampshire, and now I am back in California! When I spoke to the priests in February, they were 100% Highly Likely to start a Vocation Ministry! They proved it.
This tiny diocese of 35 parishes has 160 parishioners present representing 77% of their parishes! Unbelievable! They broke the record of 72% of parishes held only two weeks by the Diocese of Manchester! They might be tiny, but they are on a mission to fill the seminary!
This was a special trip, as well, because of the Serrans who took such good care of Leticia and me while we were there. We had a mini-vacation! They took us to Lodi (a little Napa Valley) to taste some wine! Who knew they had about 60 wineries in Lodi? We tasted wine called Jesus’ First Miracle! I think God has many miracles in store for the Diocese of Stockton!
