Mercy in Motion
Thursday, May 26, 2016
Megan meets with Fr. Gerald Gunderson, Pastor of Mary Seat of Wisdom Parish and School in Park Ridge. His community got actively involved in mission this past Lent as they supported transportation needs for the Diocese of Chipata, Zambia in southern Africa. Fr. Gunderson describes how he first become interested in mission work in Zambia through a friend, Fr. Wilfred Piri. From this initial friendship came a visit to Zambia during Holy Week! Fr. Gunderson was impressed by what he saw, especially how the people used bicycles. Upon his return, the Parish and School developed the theme of "Mercy in Motion" and during this past Lent they raised awareness and funds to purchase and send bicycles to Zambia.
