FR. RICH TOOHEY: 
PREPARING THE WAY
CELEBRATING TEN YEARS

OUR FIRST PRESENCE FOR CHRISTMAS took place December 2009 in Erie, Pennsylvania. It was our first regional use of the "Burning Bush." We brought it to Toledo in 2013. Thousands have been blessed by this "great adventure deeper into the heart of Christ's Mass." CLICK to view a particularly impactful message from Fr. Rich Toohey at a Presence for Christmas in 2011. 

A neat connection: A dynamic, young priest preached at Fr. Rich Toohey's first mass in Erie, Pennsylvania. Many now know him as Bishop Daniel Thomas.


1. LISTEN: FAMILY ROAD TRIP PODCAST (GO)!
You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be moved by the authentic witness of these four courageous couples who have embraced the challenge to "put the flag in the sand." What's that? They're gathering their families together to talk and pray on a weekly basis using the Live IT Gathering Guide.

It's making a huge impact. 
2. THEN COMPLETE the 8 Trivia Questions (based upon this episode) for your chance to win free Chick-fil-A for your entire family HERE! Congrats to the Huntebrinkers for winning the Week 2 Challenge!

The Family Road Trip Podcast is an outreach of Mass Impact. We are families engaging other families on the epic adventure of making our homes places of ever-deepening encounter with Jesus Christ.
