Project Joseph Workshop

IMG_2388In mid-November, we had a workshop to train lay volunteers to work with Project Joseph.  It was the first time that the brothers delivered the talks.  Normally, I deliver all the talks.  They were outstanding.  I was very proud of their knowledge of theology, spirituality, the life issues and pastoral care.  These guys are in the early stages of formation and doing a million other things.  Remember, we get no money from anywhere.  St. Francis said that the brothers had to work for a living.  Our brothers hold jobs, support the ministry, themselves and loved ones.  They divide their time between community, work, ministry, prayer, family and friends, and more prayer.  The workshop went well.  Our next step is to place the new volunteers and have them shadow us for a few weeks until they get the hang of it.
