Two Old Priests on Bikes - 2020

Father Terry Anderson from St Thomas More in Brookings and Father Mark Lichter from St Wenceslaus in Tabor and St John the Baptist in Lesterville/Sigel are gearing up again for their annual “Two Old Priests on Bikes” bicycling tour of the great State of South Dakota.  The bike trek begins on Tuesday, September 8th and ends on Tuesday, September 15th.  The priests will be in their home parishes on the weekend between these dates and encouraging donations.  The bicycling starts in Niobrara, NE and ends in Lake Benton, MN for a total of around 250 miles.  The race always ends in a tie, but the big competition is on how many donations each priest can garner for their parishes.  Father Terry and Father Mark have always had a fun time with the competition, and it goes for a great cause.  For Father Terry, all donations will go to the Catholic School in Brookings.  For Father Mark, donations will go to the youth in the parishes and to Broom Tree Retreat Center. 

To make a donation to Broom Tree, please call 605-263-1040 or mail a donation to:      123 St Raphael Cir, Irene, SD 57037.  Be sure to mark “Bikes” on your donation.                  Or donate online  https://e.givesmart.com/events/iAM/

For years I have recommended Broom Tree Retreat Center as a place to make a good, silent, Ignatian retreat. The facility, the setting, and the deep encounter with Christ in prayer. I renew that recommendation.
