Pentecost V

zelusdomustuaeBishop’s Corner

Pray for our new priest, Fr. Hecquard, today. His first Solemn Mass is on Tuesday. Tomorrow Fr. McGuire and I accompany him on a pilgrimage to Lisieux. He will dedicate his priesthood to the Little Flower, and I will offer her my profound thanks for all of the help she gave me last Fall. St. Therese is very close to all priests.

It is already almost a year since Fr. Larrabee was ordained July 1, in Detroit. We are most grateful for his presence with us, his help in the missions, his teaching in the school, and his devotion to our sick. Father will be with us again this coming school year, and much of the Summer. Be sure to give him your good wishes for his first anniversary.

Our good wishes and sincere thanks go to the three Sisters of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Patton sisters (No, that’s not a religious order!) and all who assisted our wonderful Girls’ Camp, full of so much fun, but also learning and edification. May Our Lord bless this parish with vocations to the religious life, and settle each girl in the strong conviction of our Catholic faith.

I promise prayers for you all at St. Bernadette’s tomb, and that of St. Therese, the Curé of Ars, and St. Margaret Mary. May the saints watch over our parish and school and families to make us all saints!

God bless you,

–Bishop Dolan
