ELEVENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

 Fr. Ringley's Note

 

 

    My thanks to various members of the Vietnamese and Spanish communities who hosted farewell parties for me two weeks ago. I am grateful for the show of appreciation for my four years of work here at The Cathedral Parish. Last weekend we hosted parties after the 4:00 pm Mass on Saturday and the 12:30 Mass on Sunday at the parish center at St. Patrick’s. Thanks to all who stopped by to say “hello” and “goodbye”, and to enjoy some food and drink. I am grateful for your kind words, cards, prayers, and wishes. (Special thanks to Leo and Mayra who handled the preparations and cleanup). This Sunday the Igbo Nigerian Community will host another party for me and Fr. Mike. (See the details elsewhere in the bulletin). I am proud of all that we have accomplished here at The Cathedral Parish over the course of my four year tenure, and Fr. Mike looks forward to continuing the forward progress. Thank you to all who have shown me support and encouragement. I look forward to beginning a new chapter in my life at St. Mary’s in Norwalk. Come and visit! ¡Nos vemos!

    We have almost completed the entire collection of video recordings of our RCIA presentations in both English and Spanish. For anyone interested, the videos of our weekly presentations are available on our website at www.thecathedralparish.org. They make an excellent introduction to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

    The Annual Catholic Appeal continues. We are at about 50% of our $95,000 goal. Please consider a gift if you have not done so already.

    The Cathedral Parish will welcome some new priests this summer. Fr. Alexis Moronta will be joining Fr. Mike as the parochial vicar (Fr. Sean’s old position) and will live at St. Patrick’s rectory. Fr. Philip Phan, the new chaplain to Kolbe Cathedral High School will also live at St. Patrick’s. Fr. Eric Silva, who is taking Fr. Mike’s old position as chaplain to St. Joseph High School, will live with Fr. Mike at St. Augustine’s rectory. Deacon Joseph Huong (newly ordained) has been assigned to serve The Cathedral Parish as well. We welcome all of them!

    The International Dinner and Raffle a few weeks ago netted us $15, 202. We are grateful to all who participated in any way to make the evening a success. As we have mentioned, the raffle money each year is earmarked for ongoing repairs to our physical plants.

    July 1st, we will take the Peter’s Pence Collection, which provides Pope Francis with the funds he needs to carry out his charitable works around the world. The proceeds benefit our brothers and sisters on the margins of society, including victims of war, oppression, and disasters. Please be generous.

Thanks. Fr. Ringley
