Congratulations to Fr. Bona for being named pastor of St. Emeric!
FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: I would like to share with you some news. Our diocesan bishop, Bp. Malesic, has named me the pastor of St. Emeric parish and also the pastor of St. Elizabeth of Hungary parish. Since these are two different offices, I will have to be installed in each parish separately. The installation at St. Emeric will take place on February 6th at our regular Sunday Mass. The Mass and the installation will be presided by Bp. Martin Amos. The installation at St. Elizabeth will take place on February 20th when Bp. Malesic will be there to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the consecration of the current church building.
I am grateful to Bp. Malesic for his trust in me. Even though I am the one receiving a new title for my ministry here at the parish, this news is more about us as a parish and less about me. Naming of a pastor is a sign of stability and confidence of the diocese in us as a community of the Christian faithful.
