Mid-July saw Fr. Denis Wilde travel to New Freedom, Pennsylvania, near Amish country, for a Pro-Life Parish Weekend. The warm hospitality of Fr. Sylvan Capitani, who has served as Pastor for a generation at St. John the Baptist Parish, made Fr. Denis’ stay enjoyable and productive.
After hearing confessions Saturday afternoon, Fr. Denis preached at all four weekend Masses. He heard from many who expressed their thanks for his message, including a number who said they now had a new outlook on life issues. Following Saturday’s Mass, Fr. Denis and Fr. Capitani were treated to a barbeque dinner at the home of Mrs. Joy Crimmons, a newly inducted MEV.
