Parochial Vicars

That’s the title that is given to the priests who are appointed to assist the pastor of a parish. At St. Edward the Confessor and San Felipe de Jesús we are blessed to have two parochial vicars, Fr. Marco and Fr. Joseph. The three of us priests work together as a team, and I feel very blessed to have them. Each has his own unique gifts, and I could not do what I do without them.

Sadly, we have received news that both of our parochial vicars will be leaving us on July 1st of this year. Fr. Marco will be transferred to the parish of Santiago de Compostela in Lake Forest, and Fr. Joseph will be transferred to the parish of Holy Spirit in Fountain Valley. We will miss them both very much, and I am sure you will join me in taking every opportunity to express appreciation to them between now and the first of July.

Of course, on July 1st we will also receive two new parochial vicars. Fr. Mauro Tinoco is coming to us from St. Irenaeus parish in Cypress, and Fr. Aristotle Quan is coming from the parish of San Francisco Solano in Rancho Santa Margarita. We will give both of them a warm welcome, and together with them we will continue spreading the Kingdom of God on earth as we journey towards heaven.

In the meantime, I hope you are having a good and fruitful Lent. Let us pray for each other!

Gratefully yours,

Gratefully yours,
