On Saturday evening, Fr. Mario Serrano, OFM Conv. celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving at St. Joseph University Parish where he is now an associate pastor. He was ordained a priest on November 4 in El Paso, Texas. Following the 5 pm Mass, a gathering in the parish hall made for an evening of fellowship and pasta.

On Sunday morning, Fr. Martin Day, OFM Conv. celebrated 25 years of priestly ordination. After concelebrating the 11 am Mass with other Conventual Friars, his family and friends gathered at the Red Barn in Terre Haute.

Congratulations to Fr. Mario and Fr. Martin. May God continue to bless you in your service to His people.
