Mass of Installation for our Pastor Father Paul Cao - August 17, 2013 - Pictures

WOW!!! – This is only one of the many words that quickly comes to mind when I think back to our parish celebration on August 17, 2013. I am grateful for Bishop Manz who represented Cardinal George to formally install me as the ninth Pastor of St. Celestine. To see the church nearly filled with so many parishioners, seminarians, deacons, religious, priests, and people from many different places who came together to give thanks and praise to God. It was so nice to hear the voices of conversation and laughter at the reception in the gymnasium and annex. It was good to see everyone was having a great time. As a faith community, we are blessed with many, many generous members. So, to everyone who had a hand in the Mass of Installation and reception that followed – from those who set up to those who took down – to the cooks, bakers, organizers, musicians, decorators – if you pulled weeds outside or poured coffee inside – to anyone who was involved in anyway in this celebration, speaking for myself as well as on behalf of the rest of the parish – THANK YOU!!!! Fr. Paul
