Catholic Schools Week; funeral for my cousin

Today we begin Catholic Schools Week.

We celebrate the great contribution of Catholic school to the well-being of our church and our society. We especially celebrate the marvelous achievement of St. Bernard School over the past 69 years. We thank all those who have been a part of the great success of our parish school and we rejoice that the mission of St. Bernard School continues with the dedication of the present Principal Margaret Samaniego, the faculty, staff, parents and students.

St. Bernard School is truly the jewel of Glassell Park.

During the past week I celebrated the funeral Mass in Phoenix for my first cousin, Father John Cullinan. He had been a priest of the Phoenix diocese for the past 64 years. This week I will be accompanying his body back to Ireland. There will be another funeral Mass, and he will be laid to rest beside his parents and his brother, Dan, who was a priest of the diocese of Sacramento. Please remember him in your prayers.
