Join me in welcoming Fr. Emmanuel Ezzenh to our parish community. Fr Emmanuel will be in residence and able to help both here and at San Albino. Fr. Emmanuel is from northern Nigeria; I'll ask him to better communicate his history at the weekend masses. Please pray for him as he transitions to a new community and share your Newman spirit with him. Welcome Fr. Emmanuel!
Bishop Emeritus Ricardo Ramirez will be celebrating three major milestones next week. He will be celebrating his 50th anniversary of priesthood, 35 years as a bishop and his 80th birthday. There will be a mass of thanksgiving at the Cathedral on Thursday, September 8th at 7pm. Keep Bishop Ramirez in your prayers as he continues to serve the local church of Las Cruces with his prayers and witness of faith! Happy birthday, Bishop!
