Feedback following one of Fr. Ronnie’s previous missions
“The Mission was most inspiring and renewed my spiritual life.”
“The Mission was exactly what I needed. My faith, although strong and I would never deny it, was feeling a bit mundane. I will never forget what this Mission has done for me.”
“The Mission was a nice balance of prayer and humour.”
“The Mission was the best event held in my parish in my lifetime. I hope this becomes an annual event.”
