Thankful for firsts

by Fr. Jeff

My second day as pastor was a day of firsts. I heard my first confessions, I introduced myself for the first time, I celebrated my first weekend Mass, and I made my first promise to the parishioners to fix the church’s A/C that broke my first day.

It was a day of firsts also for St. Henry’s new parochial vicar, Fr. Arvind Minj, HGN. Today was first time he ate BBQ ribs and cantaloupe, met my extended family, and his first time to go swimming.

Today I am

thankful for firsts.
