Farewell & Thank You to Fr. Vincent

On the evening of Saturday, June 5th, the people of Resurrection Parish joined Fr. Vincent Pineda in the celebration of the 5th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.  They also took the opportunity to thank him for his years of service to our parish and to bid him farewell as he prepares to head to his new parish assignment, St. Joseph of Cupertino Parish, on July 1st.

The celebration started at the 5:00 pm Mass at which Fr. Vincent presided and was joined by concelebrating priests, Frs. Alex Affonso, Gener Generoso and Bob Leger.  Fr. Gener gave the homily during which he mentioned that he had taught Fr. Vincent when he was still a seminarian in the Philippines.

The celebration continued with a pot-luck dinner reception in Farana Center attended by over 200 parishioners.

We are, indeed, grateful to Fr. Vincent for his service to our parish and promise to keep him and his ministry prayers.
