Bishop-elect Garcia to be ordained Auxiliary Bishop

Last week we received the great news that Holy Father Pope Francis has appointed Vicar General Daniel E. Garcia as auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of Austin. This is the first time in the 67-year history of the Diocese of Austin that an auxiliary bishop has been appointed to serve in the diocese.

Bishop-elect Garcia was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Austin on May 28, 1988, by Bishop McCarthy. Bishop-elect Garcia has served in a variety of roles in the Diocese of Austin. His first assignment was as associate pastor of St. Catherine of Siena Parish, followed by Cristo Rey Parish and St. Louis King of France Parish in Austin. He briefly served at St. Mary Magdalene Parish in Humble in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. In 1995, he was named Founding Pastor of St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Austin, leading the parish from its inception through multiple building projects until his appointment as Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia in 2014.

The Episcopal Ordination will be held on March 3 at 2 p.m. at St. William Parish in Round Rock. Due to space limitations, this will be a ticketed event. More information about tickets will be made available in the coming weeks.

 


Seasonal things to ponder...

Inclement Weather Policy:  Texas weather being what it is can be unpredictable at times. Please remember that if precipitation and freezing temperatures are in the forecast, for everyone’s safety, we will cancel meetings, services and also close the office. If you are unsure about a cancellation, you may call the office for an up-to-date notice. 

Practice charity during these months when colds, flu and other illnesses are easily spread. It is a good time to remember some rules of charity:

-Washing hands thoroughly with soap and water or using hand sanitizer diminishes the chance to catch or spread the viruses.

-If you are sick, stay home. It is never a sin to miss Mass due to illness.

-If your children are sick, keep them home from Mass and Religious Education.

-Teach your children to cover their coughs and sneezes appropriately.

-When receiving the Eucharist, we receive the fullness of the Body and Blood of Christ under the species of bread alone or wine alone. Receiving Communion under both species is a fuller sign, but Christ is fully present in each of the species so receiving both is not required. (See Catechism 1390.)

 


Annual Mardi Gras Gala

The Knights of Columbus will host their annual Mardi Gras Gala on Saturday, February 14th from 6:30-10:30 pm in the Benish Center. Join us at this fund raising event for an evening of New Orleans style cuisine, live music, dancing, fun, and fellowship! A portion of the proceeds will go to Annunciation Maternity Home.

Dinner will feature New Orleans Style Cuisine prepared under the supervision of Executive Chef, Tom Ciapi. Enjoy live classic Rock & Roll by local music powerhouse “Robyn & Steelin” featuring parishioners Tim Paoletti and Jay Powell. There will be many items raffled off, so you owe it to yourself to buy LOTS of raffle tickets to better your chances of winning!
