Happy Sunday!

This Sunday we are glad to welcome Fr. Matt Lowry in his role as Episcopal Vicar of the North. Fr. Matt is celebrating the 8:00am Mass to install me as pastor of SFdA. It’s hard for me to believe that it’s already been 5 months that I’ve been back in Flagstaff. I love it here and am incredibly grateful to Bishop Dolan for asking me to serve as pastor here at San Francisco de Asis. Thank you to all of you for welcoming me back so warmly. It has been such an easy transition to come back here and I am thankful for each of you.

Next weekend we welcome our new parochial vicar, Fr. Carlos Gomez. He is looking forward to being here and joining our community. Next weekend we will also be launching our new online giving platform called Pushpay. We are very excited for the opportunities this will give us. Pushpay will be a much more streamlined platform and make it much easier to control your giving. If you do not already give online please consider joining our new platform. Online recurring gifts help stabilize our income and give us a better opportunity to plan our budget. There will be more information next weekend.

Please keep Sat, Dec 15 on your calendar for our Lessons and Carols concert at Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Chapel downtown. This concert will be to benefit the restoration of Nativity. The concert will begin at 7:30pm and will have a suggested donation of $15-20, all proceeds will go directly to the restoration project.

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and if you were traveling you made it to and from your destination safely. Know of my prayers for each of you!
