WILBER (SNR) – Father Sean Kilcawley will give a parish mission at St. Wenceslaus Church in Wilber Feb. 25-27 from 7 to 8 p.m. each night.
Everyone is invited to attend all or part of this event. It is entitled, “Two Shall Become One: How our vocation to love is lived out in marriage and made fruitful in parenthood.”
The mission will include three presentations given by Father Kilcawley: “How Theology of the Body Saved My Priesthood” on Sunday, “Marriage as witness to the fidelity of Christ” on Monday, and “Motherhood and Fatherhood” on Tuesday.
Father Kilcawley is the director of the diocesan Family Life Office. He is also program director and theological advisor to Integrity Restored, a ministry to those affected by pornography and pornography addiction.
Father Kilcawley graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in Middle East foreign area studies. After serving for three years as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army, he entered St. Gregory the Great Seminary in Seward. He then attended St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia and was ordained in 2005. He served the Diocese of Lincoln for four years as a high school teacher and assistant pastor.
In 2013, Father Kilcawley completed studies at the John Paul II institute for marriage and family in Rome in preparation for his assignment in family ministry.
A “parish mission” is held to inspire those who attend toward a spiritual renewal, bringing about a deeper love for God, and a revitalization of personal relationships.
