Glogow-Poland. August 2nd - 4th 2019
Fr. James and team conducted "a family retreat"  at PARAFIA  pod wezwaniem Milosierdzia Bozego w Glogowie from 3rd to 5th August. The theme was, " Believe in the Lord Jesus, you and your family will be saved" ( Act 16:31) Although the retreat was intended for over 1400 people in a hall, the venue was changed as only few people registered for the retreat. In Poland the spirit of "anti-clergy" is at work through the enemies of the church, as a result many people are keeping themselves away from church and programs of the church! Fr. James gave powerful talks on the need of strengthening the spirit of catholic families through prayers and sacramental life. He said very clearly that individuals or families can not live in grace without priests and bishops; he pleaded with the people not to keep themselves away from the church because of the scandals of a few priests.  He asked pardon for the sins of the priests! All those who came to the retreat had a very good experience of the Holy Spirit and the renewal of Christian Catholic life. There were many good testimonies. Many testified that their love for the clergy and the church increased by the talks and prayers of Fr. James. It is Ksiadz kanonic podporucznik Janusz Idzik who invited Fr. James with the permission of the bishop and convened the program. He was so happy with the retreat, he even danced with the people on the last day of the retreat! He wants father James to go there again for renewal retreats. Teresa and Franciszek Gruszka were the organisers of the retreat with Fr. Janusz. Jadwiga came with a team of people from Krosno to help the organisers. Wiola and the team from Gdansk was there to Help Gaby and Fr. James.

The authorities of the Sanctuary are particular that Fr. James only should conduct this program every year.. Fr.
