Breaking bread with S+L guests

May 23, 2012
This past week Salt + Light was honored to welcome Archbishop Terrence Prendergast, SJ of Ottawa to our studios. He celebrated mass for us in our chapel and joined us for lunch.
Salt + Light is no stranger to visitors. In fact, almost every day we're welcoming a vast array of guests - friends, families, donors, supporters, small organizations looking for a venue to hold a meeting, bishops, cardinals etc. Archbishop Prendergast's visit cocincided with the visit of Ed Roy, a Catholic filmmaker who will be featured our Witness series shortly.
What struck me about this visit was how once at the table, this was a sharing amongst friends.  We spoke about the upcoming International Eucharistic Congress and S+L's coverage of the event,  the appointment of a new auxiliary bishop for Toronto, Monsignor Wayne Kirkpatrick, P.H. and our upcoming documentary on soon-to-be Saint Kateri Tekakwitha.
One of the hats I wear here is coordinator of e-mail marketing, no matter who walks through our door, whether an Archbishop or a young viewer, I make sure I get them on our e-mail list so they can be hooked in to what we're doing.  So, when Archbishop Prendergast approached my desk with Fr. Rosica, I  showed my work on the day's french version of  our "what's on" e-mail updater and got him signed up on our weekly list. He is a regular viewer of Perspectives Daily and very much aware of our work and involvement in the Church.
Thank you for your wonderful visit Archbishop Prendergast! We look forward to seeing you soon!
