Father Vernon Huguley presided at his first week-end Masses at both St. Stanislaus and St. Patrick as he began his pastoral duties in our parish. Father Vernon shared a bit about himself as he began each Mass and even shared a bit of his singing voice at the end of his homily at the 10:00 Mass at St. Patrick. His homily was warm and the people absorbed his words as he preached God's word of comfort and healing. The beautiful lyrics found in the traditional hymn, "I Surrender All," culminated his message of turning our stresses and worries over to our Lord.
The parishioners exhibited acceptance of Father Vernon's message with a warm round of applause. Father spent a lot of time after Mass shaking hands and learning names of his new parish family.
