Fr. Bill Casey of the Fathers of Mercy will be preaching at St. Anthony’s (11 N. Broad St.) in Hillsdale September 12–16. If you would like to know more about your faith, this mission is for you. If you think you are in need of spiritual growth, this mission is for you. If you are a sinner or a saint or anywhere in between, this mission is for you. Fr. Casey will preach all weekend Masses on September 11 and 12 followed by the preaching schedule below. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience having served as the Superior General of the Congregation and a frequent speaker on EWTN.
With Psalm 16 as his inspiration, Fr. Casey will offer daily meditations on how to strengthen your faith and take refuge in the Lord no matter what circumstances you might be facing personally or more broadly in this broken world. Fr. Casey will address such topics as:
• The power and necessity of a life of prayer
• The Biblical and historical foundations of the Mass and our life in the Holy Eucharist
• Divine Mercy and the sacrament of Confession
• Humility vs. pride and the foundation of virtue
• The Church and the spirit of truth
