Updates from Father Alejandro
Father Alejandro is slowly making his way to all the churches and Masses. As well as starting to get familiar with parishioners. He understands that he does not need to be everywhere and does not need to do everything. Willing to take upon the guidance of all the committees. He is also preparing for Tastes of Summer. Additionally, Fr. Alejandro is looking for a replacement for Maggie, as she will be leaving in September to join the Franciscans of the Eucharist. There will be a reception for her at the end of the summer. Stephanie has been interning for Maggie since March of 2023. Stephanie has the experience and degree for the position. Thus far, he is enjoying the parish.
