On Sunday, February 6, 2022, Bishop Martin Amos inaugurated Father Richard Bona as pastor of St. Emeric parish in the solemn framework of the Mass. The appointment of a pastor is a sign of the diocese’s trust in the parish of St. Emeric and the stability of the parish as a community of permanently established Christian parishioners.
The gathered faithful greeted their new pastor with great joy and applause. After the Mass, everyone was welcomed to a reception in the church’s banquet hall, where several organization’s representatives greeted Father Bona during a delicious chicken paprikash dinner. We congratulate Father Bona on his new position and wish him much joy, love, patience, and perseverance!
