Fr. Michael Shanahan, ss.cc., will be speaking at all the Masses at St. Matthew and St. Bernard (on their respective Mission Appeal Weekend) on behalf of the missionary work of his community, the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, an international community of priests, brothers and sisters with foundations in some 38 countries. Fr. Michael’s United States Province has missionaries in India, Tonga, and Fiji. A world-recognized member of the Congregation is Saint Damien, ‘The Leper Priest of Moloka’i,’ who was canonized in October 2009.
