Meeting Bishop Gregory Parkes

Our bishop, Most Rev. Gregory L. Parkes, is a very tall man! I got the chance to meet him on Friday night at the conclusion of a triduum for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception at St. Mary Catholic Church. Bishop Parkes was installed as the Fifth Bishop of Pensacola-Tallahassee on June 5, 2012.

The feast day we celebrated on Saturday has held a special meaning to me since it was the conclusion of the first time I made my total consecration to Jesus Christ through Mary, according to St. Louis de Montfort. It is a most excellent devotion which I have practiced every year since. In 34 days it’s almost like a kind of personal retreat since it includes daily meditations and prayers. I highly recommend it.
