Theresa Wallace has been accepted into Pharmacy school at SDSU. This is a great accomplishment and is the fulfillment of something she has long wanted to do. She has served as the Parish DRE faithfully and the fruit of her labor is evident. I am certain the Lord will bless her new venture. Congratulations Theresa! With her position opening June 12th, we will soon begin the process of finding a replacement. Theresa has graciously agreed to help us in the search and transition process. An appropriate opportunity to thank Theresa will be announced as her departure draws closer. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
I am leaving for Rome Sunday evening! After eight grace-filled months as a first-time pastor, I must take a break! While I guess you’d say I’m taking vacation, for one of the first times in my life, I can truly say I am going to Rome as a pilgrim. I belong to a lay community, Communion & Liberation, which is celebrating 60 years of founding and the 10th anniversary of the founder’s death. In recognition of these important dates, Pope Francis has called the community together on March 7th for a gathering. When I received the announcement and invitation, the experience was something like a personal invite from my dad. When I opened the email, I knew I would be going. And so I’m going to meet the Pope! …or standing in a crowd of thousands and wave to him! You can be assured of my prayers for all of you. I will likely keep in touch through Facebook, if you desire to know what I am up to.
Finally, many of you have come across the video series being produced for Lent. St. Lambert: A People Changed by Christ. I am grateful for those that have offered their witnesses. You can find the videos on St. Lambert Facebook page and Vimeo, if you didn’t get them emailed from the parish.
May St. Lambert intercede for us, Our Lady watch over us and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ reveal Himself to us. When He does, may we change!
