September Update

News September 14, 2022

Dear Friends,

At the end of August, we came together as a Parish to celebrate our Multicultural Festivities at the Lafayette School Park. It was a very enjoyable occasion! We tasted a variety of foods, from Mexico, Honduras, Italy, Haiti, Vietnam, Eretria, El Salvador, Peru, the United States and Peru. Many countries and peoples were represented - from four continents! We all very much enjoyed the musical entertainment which was very diverse. More than 600 people participated.

Our Multicultural Festival was a great success! It not only brought parishioners together, but also people from Everett and neighboring communities to share the moment with us. To all who worked so hard to make the event successful and enjoyable, thank you so much!

We shall be beginning our Faith Formation Program on Sept 25 2022, at the Pioneer Charter School. We are very grateful to have the opportunity to have the classes “in person.” This is a great opportunity to come and interact with our students. To you who responded to our calls to teach Faith Formation, we are very grateful.

This year, we have been privileged to receive two Seminarians from Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary, for their pastoral experience at our Parish. This s a blessing! I am inviting you to warmly welcome them, as you did to Fr. Vincent Vu, who did his Diaconate experience at our Parish last year.

We shall have Fritz Anacreon, a Seminarian for the Archdiocese of Boston and Jason Fox, a Seminarian from the Diocese of Columbus, Ohio with us. Helping out in our Multicultural Parish will be a great assert in many different ways for these two gentlemen.

Fritz Anacreon and Jason Fox, you are most welcome at our Immaculate Conception Parish in Everett!

 Fr. Chacha SMA
