PASTOR’S DESK November 5, 2017


No Mass Monday-Thursday

This week there are diocesan meetings in Ukiah for all the priests.  I will not be attending because of a family wedding next weekend; however, there will be no weekday masses this week from Mon-Thurs.  Fr. Peter will be here for mass on Friday and available for emergency and sick calls.


 Going To Europe   

Both Deacon Malcom and I are traveling to Europe this week, I to a family wedding in Greece and Malcom on his first trip to Europe.  Malcom has been planning this trip for a couple of years, so it is my fault that we will both be gone at the same time; however, we are leaving you in capable hands.


Welcome Fr. Gary Lombardi Next Weekend

Fr. Gary, who was ordained at St John’s in 1969, will be covering all the masses next weekend.  Fr. Gary is a good friend; I was his associate for 3 years at St. Vincent’s, he loves this parish and is looking forward to being back in the place of his 1st assignment.
