TRANSITIONS

We live in a world of transitions. As Bob Dylan sang, "The times they are a -changin'". This is true not only for our world but also for your church. Last weekend, we bade farewell to Deacon Zak as he moves forward to his priestly ordination and future ministry in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. All our prayers go with him for his future.

This is a time of priestly change in our own Archdiocese as well. Fr. Greg, who has served so faithfully these last two years has been granted medical retirement status. This will allow him to care for his parents in their home. He will primarily live with them at this time. However, Fr. Greg will still be assisting at Spirit of Christ when available. He will not reside here or have office hours here. But, he will still be a part of our community, and connected to the people whom he has come to appreciate and care for.

Beginning on June 19, we will have a new Parochial Vicar at Spirit of Christ. Fr. Adam Bradshaw will be ordained on May 25, and he has been assigned to Spirit of Christ. Fr. Adam, a Texas native but grew up in neighboring Golden, will assume the duties of ministering to our community as Parochial Vicar. We will all have the opportunity to welcome him to our parish community. Please keep him in your prayers in these final days before his ordination.

This Easter season has reminded us of the truly life-changing experience of Christ's resurrection for humanity. The act of Christ's crucifixion won salvation for we fallen sinners. The joy which we sing in His resurrection is truly a song of thanksgiving for the love and mercy God shows to his people, and the salvation Christ won for us. In Jesus, the Church continues to live and work and have its being in this Christ who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. In trust and faith, we place our "life-transitions" in his hands, knowing that he will bring to fruitions all good works done in His name. God bless Fr. Greg and thank you for all he has done (and been) for us.
