LENTEN PARISH MISSION 2018
6PM MARCH 19, 20, AND 21
Last day of the Mission includes a healing service.
Penance available each day.
Fr. James Blount is a priest of the Society of Our Lady of the Trinity – Georgia Mission, who will lead our Lenten parish mission this year. A very gifted Spiritual Director and Confessor, Fr. Jim is a bold charismatic preacher endowed and empowered with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He speaks of living a life in relationship with each of the Persons of the Holy Trinity, The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. His teachings depict his deep love for the Eucharist and his intimate relationship, love and devotion to Jesus and Mary draws many souls to also fall in love with them.
Father is a powerful instrument of the Holy Spirit as evidenced by so many stories of miracles, healings and conversions. His talks help to increase awareness of the intense Spiritual Battle in our present world where evil has waged war against the Sacred thus aiming toward the destruction of holy family life. His humble boldness and untiring drive to minister to the lost and ill are particularly noteworthy.
Dedicated to his healing and deliverance ministry, Father travels preaching and proclaiming the Gospel whenever and wherever he can, in the United States and abroad. The mission starts at 6pm with Mass on all three days.
