Father Joe, It has been a while since we have spoken. I wanted to reach out to you in this sad time for El Paso. Please know that you and your Diocese are in my thoughts and prayers.
please show complete list of new assignments
Please do not transfer Father John Paul Madanu from St.Matthews parish to Marfa Texas. He has only been in our parish and in the U.S. for five months. He has touched our hearts with his sermons and his holiness. He has inspired me to become a better catholic by becoming a member of the Legion of Mary and going to visit sick parishners and those in nursing homes. He has made a difference and he needs to stay with us. My heart is breaking becuse he is being taken from us. My prayer is that Our Lord and Our Lady will touch your heart and that you will reconsider your unjust decision. There is a special reason that God sent him to us and he needs more time to accomplish his mission. You need to send a Spanish speaking priest to Marfa,Texas. FatherJohn Paul speaks English and his native language but it is unfair to ask him to be triligual in such a short time. Please be fair and just and allow him to stay at St.Matthews. God will bless you because he loves this priest and everyone in our parish loves him too.
