A Message from Fr. Cliff:
We have received the following from Bishop Farrell: "It is
prudent to remind those attending Mass that it is up to
each individual to decide whether to drink from the cup at
Communion. Those who suspect symptoms that may signal
impending illness should refrain from doing so. Likewise,
during the Sign of Peace, people may offer simpler gestures
(smile, simple bow of the head) to accompany the words of
peace instead of a handshake or hug." This is just good
sense. If you are ill the obligation to attend Mass is
removed. Unless advised otherwise by your doctor, get flu
shots! Stay well!

given to you. You should then place the flag into the flag box identified
above. The flag is the symbol of our nation and it is important that it be
displayed and maintained properly. If you would prefer not to speak with

¡Celebren!
October 27, 2014
27 de octubre, 2014
For parishes in the United States the weekend masses on the
weekend of October 25 and 26 have been designated to be
Priesthood Sunday. It is an opportunity for us to
express gratitude to our Pastor and Parochial Vicars for the services and spiritual guidance they
provide us. On that weekend cards or letters may
be deposited in receptacles which will be located
in the Bethany Narthex. Please join in leaving your
notes of appreciation.
Our Pastor, Father Cliff, came to us with a skill set
and total dedication which have been uniquely
suited to our needs. His efforts to unify the huge
cultural variety of our parishioners have
been extensive and widely successful. With great generosity
he provides us with spiritual guidance that is illuminating and
reflects a deeply loving understanding of our human nature. His dedication and extensive involvement in the operation of our school is without peer. His addition of the
Bethany Narthex, the Columbarium, and the badly
needed new office space, provided when he acquired
the old bank building at a nominal cost, represent
major improvements to our physical plant. We are
deeply indebted to him.
We have come to know Fr. Jack Hopka as the celebrant at weekday as well as weekend masses. For
many of us he is a treasured spiritual counselor. He is
our representative when a call comes in for a priest to
visit hospital patients and the quality of his service in
this respect is deeply appreciated. Many have enjoyed the
time he spends in the Bethany Narthex chatting with parishioners about questions and issues that may be of interest to
them. He is a Canon Lawyer who devotes two days each month
in San Antonio working on Marital cases. He blesses us with
his contributions to our parish.
Fr. Henry Erazo came to us recently after serving for seven
years as Parochial Vicar at the Cathedral Shrine
of the Virgin of Guadalupe. He was ordained
on February 20, 1998 in his home country of
Bolivia. Eventually he was asked by his Bishop
to come to the United States and serve here in
the Diocese of Dallas. With us he is mostly
involved with the liturgy for our Spanish speaking parishioners. When asked what he finds
most important in his ministry he replied:
offering the people the sacraments of
Reconciliation and Eucharist. We welcome you
Father Henry and we wish you the very best
during your stay here.
Para las parroquias en los Estados Unidos las Misas del fin de
semana del 25 y 26 de octubre han sido designadas para ser
Domingo del Sacerdocio. Es una oportunidad para
poder expresar gratitud a nuestro Pastor y Vicarios
Parroquiales por los servicios y la guía espiritual que
nos proporcionan. En este fin de semana pueden dejar
cartas or tarjetas en los recipientes que se encuentran
en el Bethany Narthex. Por favor, anímense a dejar sus
notas de agradecimiento.
Nuestro Pastor, Padre Cliff, vino a nosotros con un
conjunto de habilidades y una dedicación total, que se
han adaptado de forma única a nuestras necesidades.
Sus esfuerzos para unificar la gran variedad cultural de
nuestros feligreses han sido extensos y ampliamente exitosos.
Nos proporciona una guía espiritual con gran generosidad que
ilumina y refleja una comprensión profundamente amorosa a
nuestra naturaleza humana. Su dedicación y una amplia participación en el funcionamiento de nuestra escuela es
sin igual. Su adición del Bethany Narthex, el Columbario, y el nuevo espacio de oficinas proporcionadas
cuando adquirió el antiguo edificio del banco a un
costo nominal representan importantes mejoras en
nuestra planta física. Estamos profundamente en
deuda con él.
Hemos llegado a conocer al Padre Jack Hopka como el
celebrante en las Misas durante la semana, así como
en las Misas de fin de semana. Para muchos de nosotros es un consejero espiritual atesorado. Él es nuestro representante cuando se recibe una llamada para visitar
pacientes en los hospitales y la calidad de su servicio en este
sentido es muy apreciada. Muchos han disfrutado el tiempo
que pasa en el Bethany Narthex charlando con los feligreses
acerca de cuestiones y temas que puedan ser de interés para
ellos. Él es un abogado canónico que dedica dos días al mes en
San Antonio trabajando en casos matrimoniales. Él es una bendición para nuestra parroquia.
El Padre Henry Erazo fue ordenado el 20 de febrero de
1998 en Bolivia, su país natal. Su obispo lo envió a
Estados Unidos para ayudar en la Diócesis de Dallas. Fue
vicario parroquial por siete años en la Catedral Santuario
de la Virgen de Guadalupe, y ahora es una gran adición a
nuestra familia parroquial. Sus conocimientos ayudan
enormemente en la liturgia para los feligreses de habla
hispana. Al preguntarle que es lo que considera ser lo
más importante de su ministerio, respondió: Ofrecerle a
la gente los sacramentos de Reconciliación y Eucaristía.
Le damos la bienvenida al Padre Henry, y le deseamos lo
mejor durante su estancia aquí
