This weekend, my home parish of St. Joseph’s was blessed to host several of my seminarian brothers at the Saturday night vigil and 9:00 Sunday morning Masses. Mr. Michael Kelly of the Diocese of Yakima served as thurifer, and Isaac Allwin (Tucson) as boat bearer; Abundio Colazo (Tucson) and Ben Condon (Sacramento) were our acolytes; Brent Durschmidt (Portland) was crucifer, and I served as M.C. The evening Mass was celebrated by Fr. Pedro Arteaga, MSpS, of Mt. Angel Seminary, and the morning Mass by Fr. Jose Manuel Campos (Portland), our fearless pastor, who insisted on taking us all out to breakfast afterwards. Thanks be to God for these fine men!
