Sunday, June 24, 2018 — The Nativity of St. John the Baptist


My journey of life, as an Augustinian, has been varied. My first assignment was in Florida, teaching. From there I went to Washington, D.C. to teach, and finally to New York in the Bronx.

I went from New York to California and then to Central America for ten years, then came back to work in the California Parishes of St. Thomas Aquinas in Ojai, Our Mother of Good Council in Los Angeles and finally to Saint Patrick’s, here in San Diego.

Each change demanded a goodly amount of adjustments. Learning another language was one of a number of changes.

Now, after eight years at Saint Patrick’s, I asked to retire. It has been 51 years of working here and there, and now there will be change again. But in my mind, heart and spirit, it has been a journey of God’s grace and I am always happy to see what can be next.

For me, as for all Augustinians, change is part of the job description. I hope to still reside at the Rectory here at Saint Patrick’s. I am open to help whenever needed.

Rev. Carlos Medina, O.S.A., will be the new Pastor, a great one, and a gift to Saint Patrick Parish.

So, “Goodbye” is maybe not really goodbye. I’ll always have fond memories of my time here.

 God Bless, Fr. Michael, O.S.A.

Sunday, June 24, 2018 — The Nativity of St. John the Baptist

 We, the church of Saint Patrick, in the community of North Park,
of the Roman Catholic Diocese and City of San Diego,
declare this to be our primary mission:
to come together to celebrate the Eucharist,
hear God’s word proclaimed,
give praise and thanksgiving to God,
and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We believe that by freely sharing our faith, talents, and treasures,
we discover Christ’s presence among us and bring Him to others.
We have a strong desire to give and receive love, service, peace, support,
and fellowship, within our families, our parish, our community, and the world.
Open to the power of the Holy Spirit, we pursue this mission faithfully and lovingly.
