A Note from Father Val-
I want to announce a decision made this past Thursday, March 15th, by the Vicar General of the diocese, Monsignor Clement Machado, in consultation with the rector of the Cathedral Parish, Father Robert Marshall, and myself–
Beginning next Sunday–March 25, Palm Sunday–Deacon Frank Williams, and his wife, Bambi, will be “on loan” to St. Patrick’s at least for the next two months. Deacon Frank and Bambi have served within the Cathedral Parish since 2003. Now that the Cathedral Parish also has three newly-ordained permanent deacons, Deacon Frank and Bambi can bring their ministerial gifts to St. Patrick’s for these next two months.
Our Deacon Eugene Champion and Anna are very good friends of Deacon Frank and Bambi Williams. In fact, Deacon Eugene and Deacon Frank were ordained together to the diaconate on the same day–March 4, 2000.
Welcome to Deacon Frank and Bambi Williams to St. Patrick’s! Let’s pray that their ministry and presence will enhance St. Patrick’s in our shared witness.
