Weekly Bulletin October 25, 2020
by Terrie Evans
October 25th is the day set aside to celebrate Priesthood Sunday to honor all priests who have so dutifully served their parishioners. It is traditionally held on the 4th Sunday in October to encourage parishioners to remember all past and present priests who are a part of the rich history of their church. As we hold a special place in our hearts for those men of the cloth who helped keep San Antonio open, please keep them in your prayers as they continue to serve and bring the love of Christ to all of us. St. John Vianney is the Patron Saint of parish Priests and has said “The Priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus. When you see a priest, think of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
A Prayer for Priests: “Gracious and loving God, we thank you for the gift of our priests. Through them, we experience your presence in the sacraments. Help our priests to be strong in their vocation. Set their souls on fire with love for your people. Grant them the wisdom, understanding, and strength they need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Inspire them with the vision of your Kingdom. Give them the words to spread the Gospel. Allow them to experience joy in their ministry. Help them to became instruments of your divine grace. We ask this through Jesus Christ, who live and reigns as our Eternal Priest.”
On this Sunday we also welcome Fr. Daniel Brandenburg, from the Legionaries of Christ for our 9:00 AM Mass and the Baptism of Theodora Blair Kelsey. Fr. Daniel’s order; Legion of Christ, has religious communities in 21 countries with 4 Bishops, 970 Priests and more than 481 Seminarians with its headquarters in Rome, Italy. In the United States, the Legion operates 5 Schools and provides spiritual direction, retreats and programs for children as well as adults. Fr. Brandenburg has served in Oldenburg, Indiana and is now Chaplain of the Lumen Institute and the Regnum Christi Men in Atlanta, Georgia. Over the years, he has become a close friend and spiritual supporter to the Kelsey Family.

We also welcome baby Theodora’s (Teddy’s) siblings, Big Sister Ella and Twins Rosie and Walter. The Godparents for the new addition to the Kelsey Clan are Godmother, Katie (Kelsey) Cluxton and Godfather Jeff (Bay) Guidugli.
