Passing The Torch

Greetings To All Readers

Bishop Heelan Mission Honduras / Mississippi left Sioux City minutes ago (6:30 a.m.) for their long ride to Mississippi where they will join later tonight with the Gehlen Catholic team. We wish them good luck on their trip and will be waiting their arrival sometime late tonight. The two teams meshing together for even one night is quite special at this time of year - Amazing when you think about it. Carolyn Bickford will help Fr. Cosgrove and the Heelan team in using the blog and all are welcome to read their daily reflections and 'join' the site - giving you the opportunity to send messages and make comments.

The St. Thomas More Mission Honduras / New Jersey team leaves April 4th for their work on the east coast from the devastation caused by Super Storm Sandy. Eventually we hope to track all their efforts as well.

We are extremely proud of all three groups. It always amazes me what young people can do when they are given the chance and the outlet to do good. St. Francis would be happy today.

Take Care,
R. Seivert


  1. It doesn't surprise me that our Gehlen kids have already completed all their projects. It's something I take great pride in with my Gehlen family.When something needs to get done, we say a prayer to God to give us strength and we "git er done". Great job guys!! I hope you have a great evening with the Heelan crew. May God watch over you on your trip home. Abby, can't wait to give you a big hug and kiss.
    Love Dad

  2. Have a safe trip home - be proud of yourselves & all the hard work you have done. Your families are waiting for you so hurry home.

    Love Mom
