Over the last several years, Father Mac has done a great deal of post-graduate work in the area of Alcohol and Substance Abuse and Recovery. He has given Matt Talbot Retreats and 11th Step Retreats both here in the U.S. and in Prince Edward Island. He belongs to the National Catholic Council on Addictions, the Guest House Institute, Spiritual Advisor of the Diocesan Council of the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus.
He loves the poor, loves to preach, and to bring the good news to the poor and to those who can certainly reach them through their own stewardship of talent and treasure. He is a welcome addition to Cross Catholic Outreach.
