Pentecost 2014: All in One Place Together

What a glorious description of the first Pentecost! The first reading from the Acts of the Apostles captures the excitement and wonder– they were all in one place together, the Upper Room, the same place the Last Supper was celebrated! Where the Eucharist was given, where the priesthood was born, is the birthday of the Church! They stood united in prayer, trusting in God’s promised Gift, the third Person of the Most Holy Trinity. What can we allow God to accomplish in us, when we stand together in prayer? What new life can our parish experience of “the mighty
works of God”? Think about it.

This weekend you will see a new person around the parish. We welcome Berny Chinchilla-Rivera, a seminarian studying for the priesthood. This parish has a rich history of seminarians “learning the ropes” (including me in 1990!), and I know Berny will find out really soon this summer how wonderful our parish family is. You will like Berny at the first handshake. I am delighted to welcome him.

Yours united in the Holy Spirit,

Fr. Dennis J. Vincenzo
