As you know I have been on the road for the past few Sundays! On Sunday August 23, I traveled to Saint Catherine Parish in Burlington, Colorado for the installation of Father Carlos Gallardo as the new Pastor of both Saint Catherine Parish and also Saint Charles Borromeo Parish in Stratton, Colorado. As you know Father Carlos was here at our Parish for over 4 years as our Parochial Vicar (associate pastor). It was a great experience watching Father Carlos being installed as Pastor and I know that he will do well there. Father Carlos was so helpful for me here at the parish and it was great to watch him grow. Please keep him in your daily prayers as it is an awesome responsibility to be the Pastor!
This past Sunday I traveled to Sacred Heart Parish in Cheyenne Wells, Colorado for the installation of Father Jason Keas as the new Pastor of both Sacred Heart parish and also Saint Augustine Parish in Kit Carson. We were blessed to have then Seminarian Jason here at the parish for two years and then to have him with us as a transitional deacon. I am very proud of Father Jason who up to recently was assigned as Parochial Vicar at St. Paul’s Parish in the Broadmoor. It was great having breakfast prior to the installation with his parents and family whom I have known for many years. Please keep Father Jason in your daily prayers as well.
Two Seminarians from our parish have returned to Saint Gregory the Great Seminary for further studies. Please pray for Seminarian Matt Kane and Seminarian Brandon Allen. Rev. Mr. Erin Kochivar and Rev. Mr. Sean McCann should be traveling back to Rome. Please continue to pray for all of our Seminarians.
In Christ, Fr. Brad
