 Message from Father Alan


We celebrate the great feast of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit. We are mindful of the gifts of the Spirit, of how we have all received these gifts which have been given to build up the church and to serve the human family. Not all are preachers and teachers, yet each of us by our very life, our words and deeds, can teach and preach, or witness so much. Thank you to the women, men, youth, and children of our parishes for the gifts you freely share. We keep in our prayers especially all who are graduating from high school or college this year, may they continue to nurture and share the gifts the spirit has given each of them. Fr. Alan



Celebramos la gran fiesta de Pentecostés, la venida del Espíritu Santo. Somos conscientes de los dones del Espíritu, de cómo todos hemos recibido estos dones que han sido dados para edificar la iglesia y servir a la familia humana. No todos son predicadores y maestros, sin embargo, cada uno de nosotros por su propia vida, nuestras palabras y hechos, puede enseñar y predicar, o dar testimonio de ello. Gracias a las mujeres, hombres, jóvenes y niños de nuestras parroquias por los dones que comparten libremente. Mantenemos en nuestras oraciones, especialmente a todos los que se gradúan de la escuela secundaria o la universidad este año, que continúen nutriendo y compartiendo los dones que el espíritu les ha dado a cada uno de ellos. P. Alan
