A Message from Father John Phalen, C.S.C.
President of Holy Cross Family Ministries 

    I want to take a moment to share some important news about me and Holy Cross Family Ministries and also to thank you for your support over the years. 

    Father Tom O’Hara, Provincial Superior of the Congregation of Holy Cross and Chair of the Board of Holy Cross Family Ministries shared the announcement at our Board meeting last week that I will be reassigned as of July 1, 2014, to a sabbatical time to prepare for becoming the Director of Novices in Peru as of January 2015, serving novices from Brazil, Chile, Peru, and Mexico. I am very excited about this new assignment and ask your prayers for its success. I will continue as President of Holy Cross Family Ministries until June 30, 2014. Father Willy Raymond, C.S.C, has been endorsed as the new President. 

    Much has been accomplished over the Fr John Phalenpast 18 years, and it could not have happened without your support. I can’t thank you enough for sharing your time, talent and treasure with Holy Cross Family Ministries, and I urge you to continue your collaboration with this worthy family ministry. While I will miss this work which I have certainly come to love and appreciate over the years, and I will miss the contact with you that it necessitates, I am happy to serve the Congregation of Holy Cross in another area of need. 
Fr Willy Raymond
    I have assured Father Willy that he can count on you and all our dedicated supporters in the days and years ahead. I am confident that you will enjoy working with him. He is a very dedicated and competent Holy Cross priest, a brother in community who has accomplished much at Family Theater Productions, and is definitely committed to furthering the mission of Servant of God Patrick Peyton. He believes in the power of the Rosary to change lives and strengthen families. 

    Be assured of my prayer for you and all of Holy Cross Family Ministries. I am grateful for the opportunities this ministry has afforded me to meet wonderful faith-filled people like you and to share Father Peyton’s vision. Thank you so much for enabling the living out of the Gospel through family rosary prayer!
