Farewell Reception for Fr. Vincent

We recently received the official word that Fr. Vincent would be leaving us at the end of June.  At that time he will be transferred to St. Joseph of Cupertino Parish to become their parochial vicar.  We are grateful for all the good work Fr. Vincent has done here during his time at Resurrection Parish.  He will be greatly missed.

A potluck reception for Fr. Vincent will be held on Saturday, June 5, after the 5 pm Mass.  This will not only give everyone a chance bid Fr. Vincent farewell but will also be a celebration of the 5th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.  All parishioners are invited to attend and prepare a dish for the reception. The reception will be held in Farana Center. Sign-up boards for the potluck will be available near the parking lot entrance to the church after all the Masses the weekends of May 22-23 and May 29-30. You can also sign-up by calling Mary-Clare at the parish office at (408) 245-5554.

As we received the word that Fr. Vincent would be going to St. Joseph of Cupertino, were also given the word that Fr. Allen Navarro would be following him here at Resurrection.  Fr. Allen is already well-known to many parishioners here and we are delighted that he will be joining us here as parochial vicar.  We will have more about Fr. Allen here later.  In the meantime you may wish to review the articles about Fr. Allen posted to our blog before and after his ordination to the priesthood last May.

We wish Fr. Vincent and Fr. Allen all the best and promise them our prayers as they move to their new parish assignments.
