Consecration to Mary
Pope Francis has asked bishops worldwide to join him March 25 in consecrating Ukraine and Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Fr. Frank and Fr. Lorig will offer the prayer of consecration at the end of the 7am (STM) and 8:30am (SJA) Masses on Friday, before the blessing and dismissal.
Archbishop Lucas will join Pope Francis first by celebrating the 11:15 Mass at St. Cecilia Cathedral and then offer the prayer of consecration at the end.
Pope Francis also invites priests, religious and lay faithful to assemble in their churches and places of prayer on Friday, “so that God’s Holy People may raise a heartfelt and choral plea to Mary our Mother.”
New Pastor Named
It’s not a rumor, a new pastor has been named for St. Joan of Arc and St. Thomas More. Fr. Frank Jindra will take over as pastor in July.
Eric Keisling, our current Director of Finance and Operations, has accepted a position at Gallup. His last day of employment is April 15th. While saddened that he is leaving, we are excited for this new opportunity for him. We wish him the best of luck.
We now begin a job search to fill the position. If interested or know someone who might be a good fit, check out the job description in the link below.
Office Closed Friday
The parish office will be closed on Friday, March 25.
