Dear Preacher Exchange Readers:

Greetings!  I recently celebrated my 10th anniversary with Preacher Exchange! I am amazed and honored to be able to share with you each week the guidance of the Spirit through “Come and See” and “Provisions for the Journey” during Advent and Lent. It has been wonderful to hear from some of you; I am humbled that you choose to incorporate my reflections in your ministries, and I am grateful to Father Jude and Brother Chuck for supporting me in my ministry.

If this website is of value to you, would you consider making a small donation to support Preacher Exchange so that Father Jude can continue this outreach?  It would mean a lot to me as a way to celebrate this special anniversary. Just click on the “Donations” tab on the bottom of the link bar to the left.

Thank you and blessings on you as you spread the Good News!

With love from,

Elaine Ireland
