Around the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, there were key days that made it more meaningful. On Friday May 27, our new seminarian Alfredo Jaras (AKA Tito) arrived to our parish. He is originally from Zacatecas, Zac, Mexico. He has lived in California and in Lovington, New Mexico. He is the oldest of three.This summer he will be living with Fr. Ray, Franky, and I. After the summer he and Franky will leave to San Antonio, Texas to do their philosophical studies at Assumption Seminary.
On Monday May 30, it was my first year anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood. I presided at the 10:00 am mass at which friends, family, and some priests attended. It was a beautiful celebration. During the celebration the ACTS women (my "spiritual madrinas") gave me a beautiful chasuble. After that we had a small gathering at the rectory to continue with the joy of this celebration. Thank you all who made this day more special for me.
