Father Joseph Moyer was recently installed as pastor of St. Ignatius Martyr Church in Austin, Texas.  Fr. Joe has worked at La Luz Parish in Cd. Guadalupe, Nuevo León, Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in New Orleans.  He was also working as a teacher and as chaplain at Holy Cross School in New Orleans.  Welcome, Joe!



John Korcsmar went to Peru to give a course on the spirituality of social justice at the novitiate.  Each day began with morning prayer at 6:30 a.m. Fortunately for John, Fr. Jaime Phalan makes the first pot of coffee, early in the morning before the sun gets up.

Each Friday the postulants come for Mass and dinner.  Usually, they play a hard-fought game of soccer before Mass.
