Friday evening presented an overview of how abortion impacts men couples and families with a special emphasis on post abortion issues in confession, preaching and in ministry. A number of priests commented that they had a much deeper and broader understanding of the issue and how it impacts their parish and ministry and a few want to come help on the Rachel's Vineyard weekends.
Saturday morning 70 lay and professionals gathered for my presentation on Men, couples and Families. Kevin had meetings with a polish priest in residence and with Lorraine Allaire, Respect Life Coordinator for the Diocese of Jacksonville, to offer consultation on a number of issues. He also met with the local Rachel's Vineyard team.
