Fr. Tony’s Reassignment

This weekend Fr. Tony made an important announcement that the Bishop is reassigning him to St. Robert’s in Ada. Although this comes as quite a surprise to many of us, we also know that this is not uncommon. It is an opportunity to trust is God’s plans as they are usually greater than our own understanding. 

We are being assigned two priests. Fr. Dominic Couturier (pictured on the left) will be our Canonical Administrator. This is essentially a one-year title until he is formally assigned as our Pastor. Fr. Loc Trinh (pictured on the right) will our Parochial Vicar. 

The assignments will go into effect on July 30. Let us all unite in prayer for all of these men during this time of transition. To see the complete list of pastoral appointments in our diocese, please use the link below. 

Pastor’s Meal Train

Did you know we have a Meal Train for Fr. Tony? Bringing dinner to our Pastor is wonderful way to support the work he does to lead our community and say thank you. This is an excellent activity to do as a family. Please consider signing up using the link below.

Only 12 more weeks to bring Fr. Tony dinner! Let’s make sure his last few months here are filled with love and gratitude!

This weekend, along with 40 other parishes in diocese, we kicked off the 3rd and final wave of the Our Shepherds Our Future Capital Campaign. This week should receive a packet from the diocese with information to help you discern your level of participation. Please know, that although there is a suggested amount for your family, in now way is this a requirement or expectation. You might find that you are comfortable with a pledge amount that is greater or less than the suggestion. 

All that the diocese is asking at this time is for a pledge. Although you are welcome to, you may begin your pledge at a time that is right for you, and you and you may pay your pledge in any increment that you prefer. 

You can mail your pledge directly to the diocese using the provided envelope, or you can turn it in to the parish office.
