Inter-Council Meeting Day 3

February 27, 2015

Dear Fathers, Brothers, Associates, and Friends,

The following are some of the pictures taken during the third day (Thursday, February 26th, 2015) of the Inter-Council Meeting, taking place at Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center in North Palm Beach, Florida.

The weather forecasts were calling for rain. A boat ride for everyone had already been reserved by Father Paul Wierichs, C.P.. We were hoping for a miracle. We were praying for sunshine. Sandwiches, potato chips, soft drinks, napkins, and water were already packed. 

We woke up Thursday morning and realized there was no rain in sight. A very small amount of clouds covered the sky, but a lot of sunshine managed to get through. Our prayers were answered and this coming together of Passionist fathers, brothers, and sisters was a great success. After days of meetings and being indoors, the brightness of the sun and the cool breeze from the wind felt refreshing. The boat and it's tour guide took us around Jupiter Island and showed us some of the houses of celebrities like Tiger Woods, Olivia Newton-John, and Steve Bisciotti.

No rain touched the ground all day! 

After getting back, Father Jack Conley, C.P. said Mass with a wonderful homily and we had a family style dinner at Seasons 52 - The perfect end to a nice relaxing day, surrounded by good people.
