Adieu...


A fond farewell to Fr. Jerome Lebel, visiting priest from the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter. Holy Family Parish has been blessed to "host" Fr. Lebel during his vacation for the past two weeks. He has been graciously offering a daily Latin Mass as well as hearing confessions, anointing the sick and offering three Solemn High Masses. All while on vacation.

Today's Mass was so very beautiful. Three holy priests, three different native tongues: French (Fr. Lebel), English (Fr. Lutz) and Korean (Fr. So). Yet the Mass was offered una voce. One voice. Latin. Transcending cultural and language barriers.

Fr. Lebel will offer a final Mass on Wednesday morning before returning to Lyon. Thank you, Fr. Lebel, for your generosity. Prayers and blessings for your new assignment from your friends at Holy Family Catholic Church!

So that's where Fr. Lebel's been lately! Glad you enjoyed him. He's been missed in Sacramento ...

I'm sure Sacramento will miss him greatly when he returns to Lyon. It has been a joy having him...I don't believe any priest has worked harder on his vacation ;-D
