| 'The Lenten Journey' mission
at Our Lady of the Rosary
Rev. J. Patrick Foley
A three-night Lenten mission is being offered at 7:30 p.m. April 13-15, at Our Lady of the Rosary Church, 703 C St., Union City. The mission presenter is the Rev. J. Patrick Foley, a self-described "itinerant papist preacher."
Father Foley is well known and in recent weeks has given missions and retreats throughout the Western states plus Vermont and New York.
The mission presentations begin each night at 7:30 p.m. and are titled "The Lenten Journey — Christ's and yours." The pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Church, Rev. José M. Leon, is inviting all neighboring parishes to attend — Fremont, Newark, Hayward and beyond. There is no admission charge.
Father Foley explains: "I am paid no salary and charge no fees. My sole means of support are the donations given by those whom I serve."
Father Foley is a diocesan priest, ordained in 1973. He began his ministry by serving in parish, campus ministry, administration, high school and college teaching. Since 1995 missions and retreats have been the focus of his ministry.
