Please join me in welcoming our new priest, Fr. Alex, to our family! Fr. Alex was ordained, along with Fr. Alonso, on May 30, 2015, at our cathedral. As some of you might know, he was then asked by Bishop Cantu to cover the parishes in the Tularosa /Cloudcroft area for the summer months, while their pastor, Fr. Chris Williams was away. He has done quite well in the last couple of months and looks forward to beginning his time with us. Fr. Alex will be a wonderful addition to our parish staff.
The parish staff will be on a day of enrichment, staff development, on Friday, August 7, at the Holy Cross Retreat Center. The parish office will be closed that day and mass will not be offered that day! Please keep us in prayer as we plan, pray and prepare for the upcoming fall semester.
Also, the campus ministry leadership team will be on a week-long retreat experience, beginning on Sunday, August 9th and concluding on Thursday, August 13th . They will be over at the San Patricio retreat center, located in the Hondo valley. Please keep them in prayer as they too plan, pray and prepare for the new school year.
