Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Yesterday at the DPC, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, we had the gift of enjoying the dance of a children’s matachines group from St. Matthew’s Parish and School in Phoenix. Fr. Nelson Libera is the Pastor of this vibrant Parish rich in Mexican culture.
Here are two videos of the children’s matachines dancing group to honor our Blessed Mother, the Virgin of Guadalupe! ¡Que viva!

WE HAD A WONDERFUL VOCATION FAIR ON OCTOBER 30th AT ST. ANDREW’S PARISH IN CHANDLER, AZ!
On Sunday, October 30th, Fr. Teilo, the Pastor of St. Andrew’s Parish in Chandler helped us host a fun-filled Vocations Fair. Many children participated with their families to meet the various Religious Institutes that serve in the Diocese of Phoenix. Mass was celebrated by Bishop John P. Dolan. The liturgy included children serving as lectors, bringing up the gifts at the offeratory and singing in the choir. It was so joyful for all those who participated. Here are some photos for you to see the many blessings.
Both children who were lectors were fantastic! Thank you for serving in this special Mass to celebrate Vocations!
Thank you, Father Teilo, Religious Sisters, Fr. Kurt Perera and the Seminarians for coming to be present among all the families that participated in this beautiful Vocations Fair!
God bless you all!
Yours in Christ,
Sister Anthony Mary Diago, RSM, Director of the Office of Consecrated Life of the Diocese of Phoenix
