Announcements from our bulletin of June 17, 2018
Welcome to St. John Neumann Father Matthew
Father Matthew Gomez was born in Hialeah, Florida on September 4, 1990. He grew up as a parishioner and student at Immaculate Conception Church and School. He went to Msgr. Edward Pace High School and then spent a year at St. Thomas University before entering the seminary.
He credits his vocation, in part to his parents and Encuentros Juveniles, an archdiocesan youth movement where he did a retreat and served as a leader. At Pace he got involved in Campus Ministry and through that, along with the Encuentros Juveniles, his vocation grew. For Fr. Matthew becoming a priest was always an option. His parents had always taught him and his two brothers that “the call to religious life was a valid option.”
We praise God for the gift of Fr. Matthew Gomez who has just begun his priestly ministry at our parish. Fr. Matthew was ordained on May 12th and St. John Neumann is his first assignment. We are privileged to have been sent a brand new priest so that he may be able to minister amongst us. Welcome to our parish. Please know that you will be in our prayers each day so that the Lord may continue to work through you and bring His healing and His peace.
