Pastor’s Perspective

Published on May 31st, 2013

Dear Parishioners,

This week-end, our diocesan Church celebrates the priestly ordination of Fr. Julio Barrera.   We congratulate Fr. Julio, and we thank God for this gift to the Church and to our diocese.  He will begin his ministry at Sts. Peter and Paul Parish in Hopkinsville.

Fr. Brandon will be leaving us this week.  He will travel to Mexico to celebrate Fr. Julio’s Mass of Thanksgiving in his home parish, and by the time Fr. Brandon returns, he will begin his assignment in Paducah.  Once again, I say thanks to Fr. Brandon for all he has done for me and for all of us.  We wish him well and promise him our prayers in the days ahead.  As I write this, Bishop Medley has not yet informed us about an associate pastor here at the Cathedral.

In my Perspective last week, I mentioned that I had the opportunity to see Pope Francis twice while I was in Rome.  What I did not tell you, however, is that I was able to greet him up close and personal, and to shake his hand after the audience on May 22nd.  I am grateful for that privilege which makes me feel particularly close to him now.

These are hectic days as I prepare for my move on the 18th.  I am so grateful for your kindness and prayers during this stressful time.

Love, Fr. John
