This Week

Welcome to our new Parochial Vicar Fr. Cesar Y. Betancourt

Thursday, May 19, 2022

We welcome Fr. Cesar Y. Betancourt to our parish community. Fr. Betancourt was ordained at St. Mary's Cathedral on May 6 of this year and will start his parish assignment at SJN in June. We thank God for the blessing of having among us another newly ordained priest. Let us continue to pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

May the hearts of young people continue to be open to the call from Christ, the Good Shepherd. We look forward to welcoming Fr. Betancourt to our parish family.

Thank you Fr. Ireneusz and Fr. Manuel!

Dear Parish Community,

We hope that the Easter Season has been a blessed one for you and your loved ones. Easter always falls during the spring, and this season is one of changes.

We would like to announce that after a three-year tenure at St. John Neumann, Fr. Ireneusz will be transferred to another parish. During the last three years, we have come to know and love Fr. I. He is a faithful priest, a gifted teacher, a willing servant and a consummate good sport…just ask St. John Neumann School. We will always be grateful to him for making himself available to us and for teaching many Bible classes.

For the last two years, we have also been blessed to have Fr. Manuel among us. He, too, will soon be reassigned to another parish. He is a dedicated priest who has given so much of himself to us. His availability and his love for Christ and his church have been very much appreciated. Fr. Manuel’s kindness and gentle spirit have truly helped us to see the face of Christ.

The life of a priest is one of constant change. A priest is ordained to serve the People of God, wherever they are called. After Jesus ascended to heaven, the Apostles went to preach to the known world, and thanks to them, we have the gift of our faith. We wish both Fr. Ireneusz and Fr. Manuel well in their new assignments.

Their last weekend will be June 4-5. We will have a farewell reception after each of the masses that weekend in the loggia so that each of us will have the opportunity to extend our gratitude for their priesthood and service to our St John Neumann parish family.

In Christ,
Fr. José N. Alfaro

Querida Comunidad Parroquial,

Espero que esta temporada de Pascua haya sido de mucha bendición para usted y sus seres queridos. La Pascua siempre cae durante la primavera, y esta temporada es una de cambios.

Me gustaría anunciar que después de una asignación de tres años en St. John Neumann, el Padre Ireneusz será trasladado a otra par-roquia. Durante los últimos tres años, hemos llegado a conocer y amar al Padre I. Él es un sacerdote fiel, un excelente maestro, un servidor siempre dispuesto y un depor-tista consumado... pregunten en la Escuela de la parroquia. Siempre le estaremos agrade-cidos por su disponibilidad a servir y por darnos muchas clases de Biblia.

Durante los últimos dos años, también hemos tenido la bendición de tener al Padre Manuel entre nosotros. Él también será reasignado pronto a otra parroquia. Es un sacerdote dedicado que nos ha dado mucho de sí mismo. Su disponibilidad y su amor por Cristo y su iglesia han sido muy apreciados. La bondad y el espíritu gentil de Padre Manuel realmente nos han ayudado a ver el rostro de Cristo.

La vida de un sacerdote es una de cambios constantes. Un sacerdote es ordenado para servir al Pueblo de Dios, dondequiera que sea llamado. Después de que Jesús ascendió al cielo, los Apóstoles fueron a predicar al mundo y gracias a ellos tene-mos el don de nuestra fe. Deseamos a Padre Ireneusz y a Padre Manuel lo mejor en sus nuevas asignaciones.

Su último fin de semana será el 4 y 5 de junio.

Tendremos una recepción de despedida después de cada una de las misas de ese fin de semana en la logia, para que cada uno de nosotros tenga la oportunidad de extender nuestra gratitud por su sacerdocio y servicio a nuestra familia parroquial de St John Neumann.

En Cristo,
Padre José N Alfaro

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. “Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27)

Jesus’ teaching on the Eucharist troubled some of His followers, and they lost their faith.

Do we, as Christian disciples, understand that Christ’s Body and Blood is the foundation of our faith in the Lord?
