Please remember that Mass on Tuesday will be at St. Augustine at 8:30AM from now on. There will not be Mass at St. Mary on Tuesdays.
Next weekend we will have a missionary from the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament at four of our Masses. (This was set up in the winter before the formation of our new cluster. He will not be able to be at St. Augustine.) We will take up a second collection at the four Masses to help the Fathers. There is more information in the bulletin insert.
Father Adrian Obnamia Ladines was born on December 6, 1979 in Lucban, Quezon, in the Philippines. God wanted him to serve in a deeper way in his vineyard by joining the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament. Father was ordained on December 6, 2008, which was also his 28th birthday. In his first six years of ministry he was assigned in different parishes.
During his various assignments, Father Adrian feels that God has, indeed, never failed to show his love and guidance to him especially through the help of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament. Father Adrian shared: “I can truly say that I am like the Bread of Life – blessed, broken, and shared for others.” Welcome Fr. Adrian. May we be a blessing for you and your congregation for the work you do!
I will be on vacation from August 4-11. The office and my voice mail will have emergency contact information if a priest is needed. Please note also that there will be no Confessions on Saturday, August 9th. Thank you for your support!
In Christ's Peace,
