We are delighted that Fr. Augustin Vondou will be assigned full time as a parochial vicar at St. Mary beginning on July 19, 2018. Formerly, parochial vicars were known as curates (Fr. Rick Beaulieu was our parochial vicar for many years). After spending some time here in May, Fr. Augustin traveled briefly to Cameroon to visit with his family. We are looking forward to his ministry with us upon his return to his new home of St. Mary. The hope is that Fr. Augustin will be with us for a number of years as he completes his doctoral studies and then returns to Cameroon permanently. May God bless Fr. Augustin with safe travels, joyous visits with his family and friends in Cameroon, and a blessed return to St. Mary's.
