Prayer with HFI members

Yesterday my family was blessed to participate in a holy hour with other HFI
members. The members meet every first Saturday at the Daughters of St.
Paul in Metairie, LA. They meet in the chapel for a “holy hour,” which
should really be called a “holy hour-and-a-half!” The hour consists of
vocal prayer, a reflection, and time for quiet meditation.

It was so good to be with other Paulines. This was the first time that our schedule allowed us to make the first Saturday event. The school year is just too hectic. However, being the summer, attendance at the holy hour was light. But that was okay. We were just happy to be there.

We also had the chance to visit for a short while with Sr. Julia Darrenkamp, FSP. We hadn't seen her in a long time. She is the Pauline sister of Best Catholic Books YouTube fame. You can find her videos here: You also may want to check out the Daughters of St. Paul's website for excellent resources for the Pauline Year:

Lastly, John and Jackie Ghawaly, if you are reading... it was so good to see you yesterday. We so enjoyed being with you, and we hope to make this a priority each month. May the Divine Master bless you abundantly!
