Last Wednesday evening, at our assembly this past week, we celebrated the anniversaries of numerous Franciscans, the 25th, 50th and beyond milestones of profession and ordination. I wanted to share with you that Fr. Jeremy was one of our jubilarians. He celebrated 65 years as a Franciscan, together with several classmates. Our parish is truly blessed to have a friar like Fr. Jeremy who combines the wisdom of years with a willingness to continue working in the vineyard.
Parish confirmations are just two weeks away on June 5th. Bishop Walter Hurley will be conferring the sacrament on four of our young people. Towards the end of the preparation program I interview each of the candidates. I was impressed by how much they are looking forward to being fully initiated into our faith. Mary, Leah, Tochi and Laura will appreciate your prayers for them as June 5th comes closer.
With Monday being Memorial Day, our noon mass will be moved to 9:00am.
