Yesterday evening we were treated to a wonderful conference by our faithful chaplain, friend and brother, Father Jim Greenfield, OSFS. Father gave a wonderful beginning-of-year retreat to our faculty and Mother invited him to share some of his insights, as they related to community life. The theme of Father's presentation was that of conversion examined through the lens of "holding on" and "letting go." In his usual manner, Father combined a serious spiritual challenge with his usual good humor and genuine enthusiasm for our shared Salesian tradition.
Father Greenfield is currently the local superior of the Oblate community at De Sales Hall hall and is director of formation for the Wilmington-Philadelphia province the Oblates.
