Pastor's Message from the weekend of February 4 and 5

 

Dear Pelican Valley ACC Members,

 

This weekend and coming week I will be on a retreat and a few days of vacation; Father Lucho will arrive at OLV on Wednesday February 8th and be with us until the end of March.  The first couple of weekends he will be doing Masses at St. Elizabeth and St. Leonard; he will be at Our Lady of Victory February 18 and 19th. Father Lucho has indicated that he would like to be available to visit and meet with people, and help out however he can during this time. I plan to take him down to Rochester for his annual checkup at the Mayo Clinic on March 12-13.

 

Lent is only two and a half weeks away! It will be a special Lent beginning with an ACC Lenten  Renewal (or Mission) February 26 through March 1. Check elsewhere in this bulletin for more information about the events scheduled at our three parishes Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. These will be led by two sisters from the Disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, a charismatic religious community from Texas. The sisters minister in English and Spanish. On Wednesday March 1 the sisters who will be with us will spend time with our children and youth at Faith Formation.  They will also visit OLV School.  Many thanks to staff and parishioners from all three parishes who are working together and preparing for this special ACC event.

 

God bless you all!  

Fr. Alan

 

Estimados miembros de Pelican Valley ACC,

 

 Este fin de semana y la semana que viene estaré de retiro y unos días de vacaciones; El Padre Lucho llegará a la OLV el miércoles 8 de febrero y estará con nosotros hasta finales de marzo. El primer par de fines de semana estará celebrando Misas en St. Elizabeth y St. Leonard; estará en Nuestra Señora de la Victoria los días 18 y 19 de febrero. El Padre Lucho ha indicado que le gustaría estar disponible para visitar y reunirse con la gente, y ayudar en lo que pueda durante este tiempo. Planeo llevarlo a Rochester para su chequeo anual en la Clínica Mayo el 12 y 13 de marzo.

 

¡La Cuaresma está a solo dos semanas y media de distancia! Será una Cuaresma especial que comenzará con una Renovación de Cuaresma de ACC (o Misión) del 26 de febrero al 1 de marzo. Consulte en otra parte de este boletín para obtener más información sobre los eventos programados en nuestras tres parroquias el domingo, lunes y martes. Estos serán dirigidos por dos hermanas de los Discípulos de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, una comunidad religiosa carismática de Texas. Las hermanas ministran en inglés y español. El miércoles 1 de marzo las hermanas que estarán con nosotras pasarán tiempo con nuestros niños y jóvenes en Formación de Fe. También visitarán la Escuela OLV. Muchas gracias al personal y feligreses de las tres parroquias que están trabajando juntos y preparándose para este evento especial de ACC.

 

¡Dios los bendiga a todos!

Padre Alan

 

Pastor's Message for the weekend of February 11 and 12

 

Dear Pelican Valley ACC Members,

 

This weekend we welcome back Father Lucho Palomino to our ACC, and this week we welcome a new bishop to our diocese!  The Ordination and Installation of Bishop Patrick Neary as our tenth bishop will take place at St. Mary’s Cathedral in St. Cloud on Tuesday at 1:00. In  addition to clergy and Bishop Neary’s family, friends and confreres, there is room for only two persons from each parish. However, there is also a Vespers Service at 5:30 p.m. on Monday at the Cathedral open to the public. Both events will be live streamed. YOU ARE INVITED TO WATCH THE LIVE STREAM OF THE ORDINATION ON BIG SCREEN IN THE OLV FELLOWSHIP HALL, 1:00 TUESDAY. Bishop Patrick is an Indiana native and priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross. He is 59 years old and has served in a rich variety of administrative and mission roles. He is a fluent Spanish speaker! He is eager to begin his time as our Shepherd by visiting all the pastors and parishes over the next few months. Let us keep him in our prayers as he begins his apostolic ministry among us.

 

Bishop Kettler plans to move back to Sioux Falls, where he is from. He will be leaving us soon after Bishop Patrick’s ordination. The Pelican Valley ACC sent him a monetary gift in gratitude for his generous and wise leadership the past ten years, three of them beyond his retirement age.     

 

God’s blessings on Bishop Patrick, Bishop Kettler, and the St. Cloud Diocese!

 

Fr. Alan

 

Estimados miembros de Pelican Valley ACC,

 

¡Este fin de semana le damos la bienvenida al Padre  Lucho Palomino a nuestro ACC, y esta semana le damos la bienvenida a un nuevo obispo a nuestra diócesis! La ordenación e instalación del obispo Patrick Neary como nuestro décimo obispo se llevará a cabo en la Catedral de St. Mary en St. Cloud el martes a la 1:00. Además del clero y la familia, amigos y cohermanos del obispo Neary, solo hay espacio para dos personas de cada parroquia. No obstante, también hay un Servicio de Vísperas a las 17:30 horas. el lunes en la Catedral abierta al público. Ambos eventos serán transmitidos en vivo. USTED ESTÁ INVITADO A VER LA TRANSMISIÓN EN VIVO DE LA ORDENACIÓN EN UNA PANTALLA GRANDE EN EL SALÓN DE FELLOWSHIP DE OLV, A LA 1:00 EL MARTES. El obispo Patrick es nativo de Indiana y sacerdote de la Congregación de Holy Cross. Tiene 59 años y ha servido en una gran variedad de funciones administrativas y misionales. ¡Habla español con fluidez! Está ansioso por comenzar su tiempo como nuestro Pastor visitando a todos los párrocos y parroquias durante los próximos meses. Mantengámoslo en nuestras oraciones mientras comienza su ministerio apostólico entre nosotros.

 

El obispo Kettler planea regresar a Sioux Falls, de donde es. Nos dejará poco después de la ordenación del obispo Patrick. El ACC de Pelican Valley le envió un regalo monetario en agradecimiento por su liderazgo generoso y sabio durante los últimos diez años, tres de ellos más allá de su edad de jubilación.

 

¡Bendiciones de Dios para el obispo Patrick, el obispo Kettler y la diócesis de St. Cloud!

 

Padre Alan
