OCTOBER 7, 2018
Bishop Manz formally installed Fr. Paul Cao as the 1st Pastor of the New Parish of St. Mother Theodore Guerin.
Words of Thanks – The Installation Mass on October 7, 2018 was beautiful and prayerful. It was good to see so many people from St. Celestine and St. Cyprian coming together to celebrate our new parish, St. Mother Theodore Guerin. It was good to see so many of the staff, the Pastoral Council, and the Parish Finance Council members at the Installation Mass. When Bishop Manz called each one of them to the altar, I greeted them and I felt very confident seeing this strong group of people who can make our parish strong and vibrant. I would like to thank all of them for their support and guidance helping me to lead our new parish.
I would like to thank Father Andre and the committee who organized this special event in order to make the Mass more beautiful and prayerful. I’d like to thank Lynn Schmidt, Laurie Depillo, Linda Santelli, Pauline Cordell, Greg Derlecki, and Eric Mueller who helped set up and decorate the Church and for the reception in the Gym.
I would like thank Craig Kamptner, Lynette Lilly, and Jeanne Schneider who helped put together the beautiful choirs and music, and the choirs from St. Cyprian, St. Celestine, and the children’s choir. They really did a good job.
May God bless each of you and bless St. Mother Theodore Guerin Parish!
Fr. Paul Cao
