He is no stranger to Saipan and despite of his calm demeanor his spiritual reflections always inspires and uplifts anyone’s faith. Fr. Joe McHugh SJ visited Saipan again last week to give a series of Recollection to the clergy of the Diocese of Chalan Kanoa, to the parish finance and pastoral council representatives and to the lay ministry program.
“This day is a time to rekindle our friendship with God,” Fr. Joe said to the priests who gathered for their day of recollection last Thursday, April 14, 2016. He talked to the priests about “friendship” – God’s friendship with us and on our part, our friendship with Him. “Jesus conducts not a conference but a dialogue with his disciples.”
