an inspiring website

Oct 10, 2011

Each year, the bishop of every diocese arranges a retreat for the priests of his diocese.
A bishop will always endeavour to choose someone to lead the retreat who encourages the priests in their commitment to God as priests.

This year Bishop Barry Jones has arranged for Fr. Robert Barron to lead the retreat for the priests of the Christchurch Diocese.

Fr. Barron is internationally recognised as an inspiring and sound teacher. He has, perhaps more than any other, heeded the call of both Pope John Paul and Pope Benedict for priests to use technology in the mission of spreading the Gospel.

You can find his sermons, and other teaching on his website http://www.wordonfire.org/
