Congratulations to the twenty- four young people who are to be Confirmed this Tuesday evening by Archbishop Etienne. May they indeed be filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit in whatever vocation they find themselves. May the Lord bless them in every way.
I am thankful for the Spirit leading me in my life as a priest. Last Monday (May 24) I celebrated my forty sixth anniversary in the priesthood. That has consisted of five parishes, three of which I have been a pastor. As I approach my last month as an active priest, I give our gracious God thanks for all you have done for me these past nineteen years as your pastor. You are the best. May the Lord bless all of you. I love you.
