Dear friends,

“Are we still going to have Posadas?” the look of panic set in her eyes as she asked me about the future of leadership in our parish. “Of course, I imagine the parish will still celebrate Posadas,” I replied, “the parish is committed to accompanying the poor in the neighborhood, and it is dependent on your creative leadership.” The parish member was referring however to what happens when a new Claretian pastor arrives at the parish this fall. I also know it is important the religious continue to accompany these developments.
