Because of the kindness and generosity of one family I will be leaving the hermitage on Monday evening to fly to New Mexico. I will be in Santa Fe during Holy Week and hope to attend all Holy Week services at the Cathedral (Basilica) of Saint Francis. On the 4th of April I will begin my 3 week retreat at the Abbey of Christ in the desert in Abiquiu which is in the high desert of northern New Mexico. If you have the opportunity to google the 'Monastery of Christ in the Desert' you will see what a beautiful location it is in.

When I come to the end of my retreat, I will return to Santa Fe and attend to the purchasing of medicines and medical supplies for the sick poor in The Gambia. These are things that are not available in The Gambia. Because of the airline weight restrictions I will have to mail the items to Nazareth hermitage. This is the part of my travels when I really need your help to purchase the necessary items and pay for mailing the supplies back here. If you feel the Lord is prompting you to help me please send your donations directly to me at the following address;

During this period of Lent we are all called to "Fast, Pray and give Alms".  Helping the sick poor in this ministry is surely an excellent way to "give alms".  By your showing mercy to the folks here, Jesus promises that you will receive mercy!

I pray that the merciful Lord will shower His blessings on you and fill you with His love.
