Hi  Everyone.

This week we had the second group from Holy Family Parish Tennessee with us and a few days later there arrived a group from Saint Elizabeth Parish in West Acton MA. I  am immensely grateful  to parishes  who sponsor and promote participation.   With two groups we had to scramble for living space.  When you run out of beds there is always some floor space and at Nazareth there is a kitchen made possibly by the Knights of Malta, our version of a Hilton!!!!!!

A new face ,  but at the same time is not a new face , Padre Dan St.Laurent who has returned to Olancho from New Hampshire and will help out with programs at the university and at a  parish that some have visited, San Francisco de La Paz.   Last Thursday he celebrated Corpus Christi   with the students and staff. Here then meet Fr. Dan.

On Sunday  I celebrated in Jutiquile  with the pastor from Holy Family – TN,  Father Joe McMahon who led a  procession from the church to the local park where people had set up some altars with the Monstrance containing the Host.   Since our roads are pretty bad , it would have been incredibly dumb for me to do it as I have in the past. The weekend before the other priest from Holy Family , Father Justin Ravines ,  was with us .   padre2

Each Sunday and during the week people bring Holy Communion to the sick and I like to give them a small gift to let them know how much their ministry is appreciated. Here then meet are our women apostles.

A very popular custom is a blessing of a new born at or about  40 days. It is  very popular here as you can now see.

Trying to arrange a medical visit in Boston during August and a visit to Westport  at the same time.  Presently I have  on campus therapy  Monday to Friday.   Talk with you next Saturday. Be kind to one another  and God Bless!
