Novena for my new assignment

In preparation for my new assignment as Pastor of Precious Blood Parish in Surrey (Cloverdale), I am praying a Novena (nine days prayer) from June 26 (Tuesday) to July 4 (Wednesday). The Novena consists in praying the Litany of the Precious Blood each day. My new assignment will be effective on July 5. In the morning of July 5, I will celebrate the 9 AM Mass at my new parish; it will be the Votive Mass of the Precious Blood. Please kindly join the Novena by praying the Litany at least once between June 26 and July 5. Thank you!

Good to see Brother Priests on-line

I was thrilled to see Msgr. Gregory Smith @ Salt & Light interviewed by Fr. Thomas Rosica. They talked about topics like vocational journey, Church in Vancouver, new evangelization, charismatic movement, CCO, Westminster Abbey, canon law, parish life, and tradition.

I was also delighted to see photos of  newly ordained Fr. Pablo Santa Maria on-line:
