From the desk of Father Paul, May 2, 2010
Beginning tomorrow (Monday) afternoon at 2:00 p.m., all the Priests of the Diocese will be gathering at Turtle Bay Resort for the annual Priest’s Convocation. The Bishop wants all the Priests to attend unless excused by him personally. I must admit, I look forward to these gatherings because it gives the Priests a chance to get to know one another, allows us to pray together, gives us some good points to help us in our ministries and gives us time to relax and enjoy ourselves. The theme for this year’s convocation is “Do this in memory of Me: Renewing the Spirituality of Priesthood”. It is a great topic and hopefully it will help us to renew our dedication to Christ in our Priesthood. Because there will be no Priest here to celebrate Mass, Deacon Ernie will do a Communion service each morning at 6:30 a.m., form Tuesday to Friday. I will celebrate the morning Mass as usual on Monday, May 3rd.
