Mass on a Mountain

Oh boy. I really have to get into a blog (reading and posting) routine. Our pastor is climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, and I missed a picture on the Diocese of Des Moines Facebook page. But Deacon Greg is, as always, on top of it:

“Thanks to Mercy Medical Center for providing this image from Africa, taken of Msgr. Frank Bognanno celebrating Mass on the eve of the Epiphany. The service, attended by Catholics, Christians, Jews and Muslims, was for a group of cancer survivors and caregivers, including Msgr. Bognanno, who are climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.”

Monsignor looks cold, but well thank God. I have been a bit worried about him. On Friday, I checked out the Above and Beyond Cancer web site, the group he is is trekking with, but I couldn’t find him.
