For more than twenty-five years, a spirit-led message has flowed through Pastoral Reflections, a weekly radio program reflecting on the Liturgy of the Word for each Sunday. Listeners awaken to a Heart-Presence as they identify with Monsignor Don's journey of self discovery. A message rooted in the recognition that as believers we are called to accept our human condition and its perfect compliment, the indwelling presence of a loving God. As one who longs 'to see', Msgr. Don has always looked for the story within the story, the hidden teaching of Christ, which rather than telling us what to do or what to believe, heals and transforms us. As one of his listeners wrote,"He speaks not about the truth, rather his words resonate with the Truth". Many who listen are moved to bring this healing resonance of God’s love into the world and to live an authentic life of service in Christ.
Shortly before his retiring from active parish ministry in the spring of 2010, he formed a 501 (c) (3) non profit corporation. He named it Pastoral Reflections Institute. It not only funds the cost of his radio ministry but also enables him to do much more. He can offer workshops, retreats and pilgrimages that give participants the opportunity to deepen and enrich their understanding of the themes of the radio broadcasts. Publications and CDs of homilies and talks can be made available. Educational opportunities for training spiritual teachers can also be funded. He welcomes you becoming partners with him in this ministry through your prayers and financial support.
