St. John the Baptist Catholic Church
216 W. 1st Street, San Juan, TX
(On the Southeast grounds of the Basilica)
Bilingual Mass with Bishop Gumbleton at 6:00 PM
Presentation (in English) by Bishop Gumbleton at 7:00 PM
Followed by a social in the Parish Hall.
Sponsored by St. John the Baptist Parish and the now
Sunday Night Vigil ~ Extended!
Report on Last Night's Vigil (picture Above):
Fifty faithful and hopeful participated. It was very spiritual and uplifting; my thanks to the organizers. A participant who wasn't a regular asked if any of the fired church workers were present and we had to explain about Fr. Brum's ban on church workers praying on church property on their own time. To us the lunatic workings of Fr. Brum seem routine; sometimes we fail to anticipate the shock others have when they are first confronted with his tactics. Hard to understand how he has been allowed to continue as a pastor of a Catholic parish.
We invite everyone to join us again on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights of this week, at 8 PM in front of the church.
What A Nice E-Mail:
We want everyone at Holy Spirit to know that our prayers are with you all this week for a just and peaceful resolution from the tribunal. Even though we are far away from you now here in Salina Kansas, it is only in body, not in spirit. We dearly miss Holy Spirit parish.

A Little Chuckle:
It seems not being granted permission to promote Bishop Gumbleton’s scheduled appearance in the Valley within Holy Spirit’s Sunday Bulletin has spurred some Guerrilla Marketing tactics by many of our parishioners.
Last Sunday, the parking lot at every mass was filled with cars that had GIANT POSTERS announcing the Gumbleton event. All of these posters were taped to the inside of the car windows, so they could not be removed. When asked by Father Louis what could be done, the security guard replied that they were all cars of people who were attending mass and since the posters were on the inside of the vehicles, there was really nothing that he could do. He was then asked to take down all the license numbers (for possible later retaliation?).
