Father Flores has been the Pastor at Our Lady of the Valley for the past 13 years and he is well liked and loved by the parishioners. he had been asked to move many miles away to a parish in Northern Idaho and being obedient he accepted. He has made Our Lady of the Valley and beautiful and holy place filled with exceptional and faithful communities. He is a reminded that god's ways are often not our ways, and God's plans are all too often not what we envisioned as our plans. Yet, we are to faithfully and joyfully serve.
Camino De Santiago
Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."
