the first church ever built in the city ofgalveston was st. mary’s. when in may of 1847galveston was established as a diocese, in fact the first diocesein the state of texas, in fact the only diocese in the state of texasand thus included the whole state. a beautiful transformation hastaken place in st. mary’s basilica,


Dubai Shopping Festival

Dubai Shopping Festival, and it has become again a symbol ofhope, not only for the people of galveston, but i think for all ofthe people of the archdiocese. it allows us to realize that ourspiritual foundation in christ jesus aided by the prayers of themother of god, that foundation is

what supplies us to reach out ingood works, in generosity, in a liberality so we imitate the godwho is even more generous and liberal towards us in goodness, intruth, and in spiritual enrichment. "be rich in goodworks ready to share," from the first letter st. paul wrote to hisfriend timothy. st. paul speaks about being rich in good works.why? he’s talking to the halves. he’s talking to those who have illusive wealth and he’s saying tothem one of the reasons why you have this is so that you can sharein good works with the whole

community, particularly with thosewho are in any kind of need. some of our programsin dsf help to support youth and young adults. our young people areenthused about their faith. they need formation, they wantformation. i’m a rising junior atrice university and i’ve been involved in parish ministry at myhometown parish st. john the evangelist in baytown, texas sincemy sophomore year in high school. as a bishop i met st. john paul thesecond. the first thing that john paul the second said to me "whatare you doing for the young

people?" freshmen year of highschool i found out that we had a youth group that met on wednesdaynights. we would come together sings songs and worship the lordand we would come to get a better understanding of gods love for us.a lot of the parents would come and they would bring us food to eatafterward and this was really my first experience with service atthe church and they served us a really great example for me in mycoming years. i grew up in nigeriawhere i had a really strong

catholic upbringing and even aftermoving to houston for college, i was able to keep taking part inyouth activities through churches like st. cyril that offer a lot ofyoung adult programs that are tailored specifically for college students.and the best part i thought about these programs is that they emphasize the reasoning behind why we do what we do ascatholics and young people really respond to that. as a freshman at riceuniversity i felt drawn to become involved in campus ministry. idecided to use my god given talent of music, and i volunteered to playthe piano at mass every sunday.

three years later you’ll find me oncampus playing piano at mass as a testament of my faith. faith formation hasdefinitely had a positive influence in my life and it’s still guidingme in a lot of the decisions that i’m making today. as a medicalstudent, i know that i will be exposed to situations which arebasically going to boil down to a judgment call. and i know now thati can’t just make decisions that make everyone happy, i also have tomake decisions that are right by my conscience.faith formation is

vital to making the right decisionseveryday, and to making friends, and building a better future. that is, we need priests andconsecrated religious in our archdiocese to help share theburden of leadership for god’s holy people and to bring out the giftsin god’s holy people. i grew up in a catholicfamily in san antonio. when i was older in my teens, i understoodthat god was calling me to choose him above any other ideal i couldhave in my life. i took a job in the corporate world in new york,and it really was a big

disappointment, it was there that irealized that god was perhaps making it clear that now it wastime to become a priest. i looked deeply into my heart irealized that i wanted to come back to texas, and specifically houston,because every time that i had been to houston, i really loved thecatholic culture that i found here because of the diversity that i hadfound, because of the vibrancy, because of the people. i toldfather clint, i was questioning whether or not it was the moment tobecome a priest, and he assured me that he felt that i did have acalling. the beautiful

moment came on june 7th whencardinal dinardo ordained three of us to the sacred order of thepriesthood. it was such a profound and beautiful ritual. sisters and brothers, the vocationsoffice is supported by dsf. that means the vocation office issupported by you. i’d like to take a moment to speak about threeagencies that are particularly focused on ready to share. catholiccharities, san jos㩠clinic, and st. dominic village. for more thanninety years, starting with a pastor and a small group of peopleat annunciation parish downtown,

san jos㩠clinic has provided freemedical service to those who are in need and who are eitherunderinsured or uninsured. my son sebastian, he’sone time is sick, so, i tried to find help. so, i go with my son tosan jos㩠clinic. my son sebastian had weight problems.it was like, it made me feel different, and i decided i wasgonna change that. in the course of these ninety plusyears a massive number of doctors and nurses and other medicalpersonnel, have reached out in generous service to provide for theexcellent physical, medical, and i

would say in the long run,spiritual care of those who come to san jos㩠clinic. yeah my mom just tookme to the san jos㩠clinic one day, and they explained all the obesityproblems, and it made me inspired me to change that and becomehealthier. at first it was really tough i couldn’t reallycontrol myself but then the san jos㩠clinic really helped me tostart working out more, eating healthier. they made meunderstand the problem and it was really bad, so i decided that i wasgonna change it and i started

playing soccer and working out andeating healthier. every program that is supported bydsf helps us to grow richly in sharing the faith with one anotherand with the world. please be rich in this good work. share the faith.thank you very much.
