Last week I was able to visit some of our seminarians; Alex in Houston and Ivan and Ruben in Dallas. Alex passed his fourth and final evaluation and is really excited and looking forward to his ordination, with Alonso, on May 30. Both Ivan and Ruben are doing very well, getting back into the rhythm of seminary life.
This year our United in Ministry goal has increased, almost by $5,000; our goal this year is set at $56,221.71. Last year we were both able to meet and exceed our parish goal, meaning a rebate of almost $21,000. I hope that you will consider making a pledge, either in the name of our seminarians or one of our retired priests. There are a couple of options when making a pledge; you can do a onetime donation or a monthly gift, whatever is easiest for you. Also, when you’re ready to turn in your pledge envelope you can do a few things to ensure proper delivery; you can put it in the mail, you can drop it in the collection basket or you can simply come by the office and leave it here.
On behalf of our seminarians, Alex, Alonso, Gino, Ruben, Ivan, and Jeff, I’d like to express my gratitude and appreciation for your prayerful support. Please pray for those who are considering a life of service to God’s church.
