I don't know just who he was covering it for unless one considers his blog a major news outlet, which I do not. He did manage to wrangle his way onto a couple television programs while he was there.
Father Paul Nicholson of Canada was chaplain for the Retreat Cruise. A bit more about Father Nicholson here.
I'm sure the Caribbean Cruise Retreat was edifying for all who attended. Perhaps next year my confessor will assign me the penance of making a Lenten Cruise Retreat. OH THE HORROR!!
I'm happy to say the next annual Lenten Cruise has a target date of January.
It should be noted as well, in spite of my snark, I think that a cruise retreat (outside of a penitential season) is a good idea. It was obviously a good witness to the Catholic faith traditions through the procession which attracted other participants in the conferences and the Masses. The New Evangelization in action.
