On Monday, November 26th, Bishop Ramirez and I had the opportunity to celebrate a 24th anniversary in Guadalajara with his Excellency Cardinal emeritus Juan Sandoval Iniguez. Many bishops, priests and religious sisters attended this event. It was a beautiful celebration held at the Sand Pedro church in Taiquepaque, Jalisco. It was a such a blessing to be a part of a great event.
I have been conscious of the work and commitments I have in the parish, so I decided to take a few days for myself to reflect on what is to come. This weekend we welcome the Spanish mass in our community. This will be the first time Newman will have a permanent Spanish mass.
A toda la comunidad de habla hispana, quiero darles la bienvenida a nuesta primera misa en Espanol en el Newman Parish. Sinceramente espero que esta comunidad los haga sentir como en su casa. Aqui estamos para ustedes. Que esta experiencia nos ayde a aumentar nuestra fe en Senor Jesucristo. A todos ustedes bienvendios a esta su casa!
