Father Cedric's missions are well attended.
~Thank you! Fr. Cedric, for coming to San Antonio this week. My wife and I have been noticing the rebirth in our lives, especially me. I felt the Holy Spirit's promptings as I have began to "let go" and let God. I hope to meet you someday but I am thankful we went to your retreat.~
~I knew about the mission ahead by I really hadn't planned on attending. Then something happened when you preached on Sunday. All I know is that I just couldn't wait for the next day! For the first time I really felt like there was something I needed to find out. I bought many of your books. Now I wake up with a song in my heart. What a way to wake up!~
