Local resident Peter Vale has completed his first year studying theology in Rome, and he has been given a summer assignment in Sweden.
Vale is spending four weeks at Kristus Konungen (“Christ the King”) Parish in Gothenburg, which is the second-largest city in Sweden next to Stockholm and sits a little more than halfway down on the country’s west coast.
Vale reports it’s a very active parish, with four priests and two daily Masses (three when it’s not summer). He said: “I plan on doing all of the usual things (serving Mass, helping out in the parish office, sitting in on groups/meetings, etc.), as well as getting involved in some hospital and prison ministry here in the area. So far, everyone has been incredibly welcoming, and I’m looking forward to an enjoyable assignment!”
