“A little bit of heaven!”

Last Sunday’s Mass in Echo Park was a very moving and memorable celebration. What a beautiful expression of our faith! It was wonderful to have hundreds of us gather to celebrate the Eucharist. The presence and inspiration of the Holy Spirit was definitely apparent. The best description was shared with me by a woman when she said: “This was a little bit of heaven!”

I want to express my gratitude to the many folks who helped make this experience the great success it was. To the committee formed to plan the event, I am most grateful. To our choirs, musicians, Eucharistic ministers, greeters, ushers, readers, servers and to my brother priests – thank you! Also, to all of the folks who arrived very early to set-up the altar area, choir risers and the tremendous sound system – thank you!

Judging from all of the positive comments I’ve heard this experience was a renewal of faith for many. What more could one ask for?

God bless you always!
