Dear Friends in  Christ,                                                                                                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I am so very pleased with the tremendous amount of interest in serving on our Parish Pastoral Council.  It certainly made it a difficult choice to choose the (3) new members who will join the (6) parishioners who are current council members.  Our (3) new members who will serve a (3) year term are:  Susan Malubay, Crissey Robinson, and Lee Santoyo.  All of our parishioners who indicated an interest in serving on the council either through our Stewardship Renewal or by submitting a nomination form will be placed on the alternate list and may be called upon should a current member of the council need to step down due to illness, conflict in schedule or the need to move from the parish.  Again, many thanks to these fine parish leaders.  I look forward to another great year working with our Parish Pastoral Council. Here is something that I am noodling on.  Since my arrival, I have noticed that we have a lot more sinners in the parish.Smile  The last several weeks I have not been able to hear all of the confessions prior to the 5 p.m. mass.  Due to the many weddings and quinceaños celebrations we have almost every Saturday it does not work to have confessions earlier in the afternoon on Saturdays.  Since several of the Vancouver parishes also have confessions on Saturday afternoon I am thinking about moving our confessions to Saturday morning – perhaps 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.  This way I will not feel rushed and anxious especially as we get close to Mass time.  Also, you know how important it is to me to be able to greet parishioners as they arrive.  When the confessions go long, I am not able to do so.  Let me know what you think of this potential change in our schedule – and for goodness sake stop sinning!Smile                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Peace+  
Fr. Tom                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Queridos amigos en Cristo, 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Estoy muy satisfecho con la enorme cantidad de interés en formar parte de nuestro Consejo Pastoral Parroquial. Ciertamente lo hizo una elección difícil de elegir los (3) nuevos miembros que se unirán a los (6) feligreses que son miembros actuales del consejo. Nuestros (3) nuevos miembros que integrarán a un término de (3) años son: Susan Malubay, Crissey Robinson y Lee Santoyo. Todos nuestros feligreses que indicaron un interés en servir en el consejo, ya sea a través de nuestra Corresponsabilidad de Renovación o mediante la presentación de un formulario de inscripción será colocado en la lista de suplentes y podrán ser llamados si un miembro actual del Consejo tenga que renunciar debido a una enfermedad, conflicto en el horario o la necesidad de mudarse de la parroquia. Una vez más, muchas gracias a estos líderes tan finos de la parroquia. Espero otro gran año trabajando con nuestro Consejo Pastoral Parroquial.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Hay algo que estoy en pensando. Desde mi llegada, me he dado cuenta de que tenemos mucho más pecadores en la parroquia. Smile    Las últimas semanas no he sido capase de escuchar todas las confesiones anteriores a la Misa de las 5 p.m.  Debido a las muchas bodas y quince años que tenemos casi todos los sábados que no funcionaria tener confesiones más temprano en la tarde los sábados. Ya que varias de las parroquias en Vancouver también tienen confesiones el sábado por la tarde estoy pensando en mudar nuestras confesiones sábado por la mañana - quizá  8:30 a.m. a  9:30. De esta manera no me siento apresurado y ansioso especialmente antes de la Misa. También, usted sabe lo importante que es para mí ser capaz de saludar a los feligreses antes del inicio de la Misa. Cuando las confesiones duran mucho tiempo, no soy capaz de hacerlo. Déjeme saber lo que piensen de este cambio potencial en nuestro calendario - ¡y por favor dejar de pecar!Smile
