"What a blessing on June 24...  such a powerful morning...  
I could feel the love and the commitment 
the women who attended had for our priests."
Comment from a new spiritual mother for priests:

We thank our Blessed Mother for this beautiful gathering of spiritual mothers for priests, and Fr. Elliot, who prayerfully prepared such inspiring talks. The pastor, staff and the lovely Legion of Mary women welcomed us and took care of all the luncheon set-up and clean-up. We are grateful to them and to all who came to pray and share food and Christian fellowship.

Once again, our event was lovely. Our Lord and our Lady truly blessed us with the hospitality of the Lourdes ladies, the heartfelt presentation and prayers of the pastor Father Jim Theby, a blessing with the first class relic of the visionary St. Bernadette, and for each woman a small bottle of water from the miraculous spring at Lourdes. Thank you to all who assisted.  May God be glorified and sanctify His priests!
