My Dear Parishioners,
How are you doing? I am doing great and still going for I survived Holy Week, the Easter celebrations, our children’s Confirmation and their First Confession and First Holy Communion. I survived our end-of-the-school-year activities and graduations of our children and my niece. God is great for He has kept me safe and healthy with the energy I needed to lead our parish and to celebrate His Holy Sacraments with love and devotion. I love our Catholic Faith! Thanks be to God who made me and blessed me with 19 years as a priest this Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. God knows that I don’t deserve to be a priest nor to be a pastor. He has graced me much for He has loved me much. All I want now is to continue loving Him and serving Him. This weekend, I am looking forward to celebrating the transitional deacons’ ordination and Father Matt Siegman’s ordination to the priesthood at Cathedral. Please join me and many guest priests at 3pm this Sunday in our church for Fr. Siegman’s first Holy Mass and reception following Mass. Does anyone know how old is Fr. Siegman? He is 33.
Finally, please join me in thanking God for all our children who have succeeded in their academic year and above all, to our beloved Fr. Siegman for becoming a priest. May God watch over them all to keep them safe throughout this summer. Please also thank our teachers and parish staff who helped our children in their formation and education. We are blessed to have them with us. We love them all and congratulations to Father Seigman.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us, Fr. Hien
