Joe & Sue O’Donnell, founding couple of the MI Village, led everyone in the Divine Mercy Chaplet and were honored for their 25 years of work for the MI in the Diocese of San Diego. Fr. Kolbe Missionary, Ann, brought them greetings and thanksgiving from the MI International President, Raffaella Aguzzoni in Rome.
Long time member of the Village, Mary Breda, worked over two months to prepare a moving DVD of the history of the Family Village which covers – the Monthly Family Village, an MI Children Camp for five days at a local park for over 200 children, Camping weekends for families, MI Teens, La Posada, All Saints Day parties, Couples Night, Preparation for Total Consecration, Annual Mission Bay day, deaths of two of the children and miracles from them, the new generation of children now young adults getting married….

I called Mike Wick at the Institute for Religious Life office at Marytown regarding copies of the Pope John Paul Vocation prayer book he compiled. We will make it available for use during our monthly Nocturnal Holy Hours. Since the adoration is a fruit of the Vocational Night and Lenten retreat sponsored by our Village, we will invite the adorers to pray for both a spread of the total consecration and an increase of vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.
