Fr. Brian in town...
So Fr. Brian, our vocation director, has come to visit us in Rome. I think he picked just about the perfect time. Weather is warming up and the flowers are in bloom. Unless, that is, if you have allergies. Yikes! The pollen is horrible here. Anyways, the word on the street is that there will be a new vocation director assigned come July 1st. So please keep Fr. Brian, who returns to parish ministry, and our new vocation director in your prayers.
Meanwhile, I have heard that we are hopefully accepting three new seminarians into the diocese this coming fall. That will bring us to 38 seminarians altogether. That is, after the ordination of Deacon Hector Montoya and Deacon Arthur Najera to the priesthood on Memorial Day. Please pray for all the seminarians that they have the courage to continue in their priestly vocations and strive to be holy priests.
Ok, so this is basically a list of prayer requests. :)
