Be Lead by the Spirit

by Fr. Adrian Cisneros  |  05/28/2023  |  From the Clergy

This weekend we celebrate how we can allow ourselves to be lead by the Holy Spirit. To permit the Holy Spirit to take control of our lives: by constantly remembering His Holy Presence and behaving well; by praying for His daily anointing so that we may fight against our temptations and control our evil tendencies, evil habits, and addictions; by asking His daily assistance to pray, listening to God through meditative Bible reading, and talking to Him by personal, family and liturgical prayers; and by asking the help of the Holy Spirit to do good for others and to be reconciled with God and others every day.

Our school principal has been here for over seven years and she has done wonderful work with our school students and their families, but this year will be her last here at St. Stanislaus. Her presence here was definitely appreciated by many and she will be missed. Like a pastor of a parish, Mrs. Hollcraft has grown close to this community of faith and while it is not easy for her to move on, this is a great transition and opportunity for her and she is leaving the school in a good place and in good hands with the next principal of our school. Thank you, Mercedes, for all the work you have done here, and very soon you too will not be with us here at St. Stanislaus, but you will remain with us united by our Catholic faith and in the impact you had here!

This past week I was on a much needed spiritual retreat and this week I am taking some time away, but as always, please be assured of my prayers for you, your families and the whole of St. Stanislaus. I do ask you to keep our parish, the Maze church repair project and me in your prayers; there is great power in prayer.
