My Dear Parishioners,
Are you ready for some Super Bowl football? Go Chiefs! Go Chiefs and bring home the Super Bowl trophy. It has been 50 years of waiting for all Chiefs’ fans. It has been 33 years for Father Hien. I cannot wait another 33 or 50 years. The Chiefs have been my team since I first came to America in 1986. I chose the Chiefs because they are the closest team to Wichita. I like their uniform and I also like that they are not a wealthy team like most teams. A few years ago, two parishioners and their families took me to a Chiefs’ game. It was my first and still my only NFL game. It was fun watching them play in the stadium, but it was not fun traveling, walking, waiting in line and of course it was not that fun watching in the rain either. So, I will be happy watching the Chiefs in my kingdom at All Saints. Go Chiefs!

Finally, during the exit song at all Masses this weekend, everyone, old and young, is invited to receive the blessing of the throat through the intercession of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr, to keep you healthy and blessed.
Go Chiefs, Fr. Hien
