to respect life here in America. I ask that you prayerfully consider supporting this cause by dropping
off any and all loose change you may have to help pregnancy centers in our Diocese.

Bishop Kevin Vann appointed our Parochial Vicars, effective July 1, 2017
May we ask the Holy Spirit to give us virtues of generosity and flexibility to manage the Priests’ assignment changes after July 1.
Bishop Kevin Vann is pleased to appoint two new bilingual diocesan priests as the Parochial Vicars of St. Cecilia, effective July 1, 2017. Fr. Ismael Silva (1979) is coming from Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Santa Ana and Fr. Nicolaus Thai (2016) from the completion of his master in theology at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome (aka the Angelicum). After obtaining a master’s degree in applied physics, Fr. Nicolaus entered the seminary at the age of 25. Fr. Ismael will be working with Fr. Bao and Maricela Moran in administering the Hispanic Ministry. Fr. Nicolaus will be a coordinator for the Adult Faith Formation at St. Cecilia Church and is also joining with the School Faculty to teach one religion class. As we have generously shown our prayer and support to Fr. Wayne, may we continue to do so to our two new coming fathers.
Bishop Kevin Vann is pleased to appoint Fr. Wayne Adajar (1998) as the Parochial Vicar of San Antonio de Padua del Cañon Church, Anaheim Hills, effective July 1, 2017. As Fr. Wayne has graciously completed his assignment with us, we are deeply grateful to him and will definitely miss him.
We — Fr. Bao, Fr. Ismael, Fr. Nicolaus, Deacon Dong, Deacon Rafael, Deacon Gaston, Deacon Aristotle, Sr. Francesca, Mrs. Alvarado, Staff and Faculty — are deeply grateful to you for all your constant prayers and loving supports to our St. Cecilia Catholic Church and School!
Through the intercessions of Our Heavenly Mother Mary and St. Cecilia,
May Our Loving and Merciful God bless and grant you and your family
a very grace-filled and blessed year!
