Installation of Bishop Daly!

On May 19th & 20th the Diocese of Spokane will celebrate the installation of the Most Reverend Thomas Daly as our seventh bishop. Both his Installation Mass and a Prayer Service the evening before will take place at Our Lady of Lourdes Cathedral. Given the restricted seating space at the Cathedral, admission will be "by ticket only." The pastors of each of the 82 parishes in the diocese are asked to choose parish representatives for the Prayer Service and the Installation Mass. Please note that there is a reception for the general public at the Cathedral´s O´Connor Hall from 3:30 to 5:30 PM on Wednesday, May 20th prior to the Installation Mass. No tickets are required for this event. In the coming weeks, please watch the bulletin and website for details about how the faithful of our diocese can follow all these special events by radio and television.

Over the course of the coming year, our parish looks forward to having an opportunity where we can welcome our new bishop. Please pray for our new Chief Shepherd as he assumes his sacred duties.

Click here to read more about Bishop Daly.

Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Thomas A. Daly the seventh bishop of the Diocese of Spokane. Bishop Daly is currently the auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of San Jose. The bishop–select made a quick trip to Spokane on March 12th to hold a brief news conference and to meet the priests of the diocese. Bishop Daly will spend the next two months completing his obligations to the Diocese of San Jose. His installation as Bishop of Spokane is set for May 20th at the Cathedral. A Vigil will be held the evening prior to the Installation at which representatives of clergy, deacons, Religious and secular groups in the diocese will welcome the new bishop and join him for a time of prayer. Public receptions will follow the Prayer Vigil as well as the Installation Mass.

Bishop Daly was born April 30, 1960, and grew up in San Francisco. He has six siblings. A product of Catholic schools since he was in first grade, he graduated from what is now Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory School in San Francisco. He received his bachelor´s degree from the University of San Francisco in 1982. He entered priestly formation at St Patrick Seminary in Menlo Park, CA where he completed his studies with a master´s degree in divinity. In 1996 he received a master´s degree in education from Boston College. Bishop Daly was ordained to the priesthood on May 9, 1987. He has served as parochial vicar and pastor, he has been engaged as part–time police chaplain, archdiocesan vocations director, teacher, campus minister, and chaplain to St Vincent´s School for Boys. For 19 years his ministry focused on Marin Catholic High School in San Francisco, where he eventually served as president.

On March 16, 2011, Pope Benedict XVI appointed Father Daly auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of San Jose, the first to serve in that capacity in the history of that diocese. He was ordained to the episcopacy at San Jose´s St Joseph Cathedral Basilica on May 25, 2011. The appointment also named him titular bishop of Tabalta (Tunisia in North Africa). "Into Your Hands" is Bishop Daly´s episcopal motto, reflecting his desire to trust in the guidance of Divine Providence and the intercession of our Blessed Mother.

Bishop Daly has chosen to reside at Bishop White Seminary which houses the diocese´s college–level priestly formation program.

INDIA

"SO HOW WAS INDIA?" Several people have asked about my recent trip to India, and there´s so much to share–much more than a bulletin blurb will allow, so I´ve decided to write something a bit more detailed for our parish. Click here to read the letter from Fr. Tim on India

 

Cinderella

The money raised from this musical comedy adaptation of Cinderella will go to benefit the Diocesan supported Guatemalan Medical Clinics who served over 5,000 native Mayan Indians last years. The proceeds will be used to remedy one of the clinic´s major problems in that they do not have medical laboratories and therefore the patients need to travel more than an hour to the nearest lab to have blood work done, which is both costly and takes days for the results. The solution comes in the form of a handheld diagnostic tool, known as an I-Stat, which can perform over 30 different blood tests with results reported in minutes. The cost of this device is $10,000!

There will be four performances and the cost per ticket is $10.00:
Saturday, April 25th at 7:00 P.M.
Sunday afternoon April 26th at 3:00 P.M.
Saturday evening May 2nd at 7:00 P.M.
Sunday afternoon May 3rd at 3:00 P.M.

Fall 2016 Pilgrimage

Father Tim has finalized arrangements with Magi Tours for another pilgrimage opportunity to Italy in the fall. Dates are set are for September 28th through October 7th with two primary centers of travel: the first of which is Rome–where we will have the opportunity to be present for the Wednesday morning audience with Pope Francis, tour the Vatican museums and the primary churches of Rome: St. Peter´s, St. John Lateran, St. Paul Outside the Walls, St. Mary Major as well as the Roman Forum and ancient sites around the city. The second center for travel will be Orvieto–from there we will have an opportunity to visit Florence and see the Duomo–visit the great art in the Academia and Uffizi; we will also have a day in Assisi (currently scheduled on the 5th–the day after the Feast of St. Francis). Mass will be celebrated each day and opportunities to deepen our prayer lives along the way in incomparable settings. Flyers are available in the gathering space as well as in the dining room. Space is limited!

 

Mysterious Yellow Envelopes

Ever wonder what the yellow envelopes are for? Under the leadership of Bishop Bernard Topel in the late 1950´s, the Diocese of Spokane entered into an agreement with the Diocese of Solola in Guatemala to share spiritual, material, and human resources. In 1966 the Bishops of Spokane and Solola reaffirmed their relationship via a ministerial covenant. Your donations through the yellow envelopes or online at Parish Pay allow our parish to make regular monthly payments which support the Ixtahuacan Youth Group program, students in Ixtahuacan attending school and seminary, and the operation of the Marian Center, which is used for religious education and other parish gatherings. Without our donations these programs would not exist for the people of Ixtahuacan. Please remember our friends in Guatemala when planning your charitable giving.

 

Ministry Sign-Up

Please prayerfully consider how your gifts might be used in this new year.
