    Sounds like a wonderful little parish, and a great Priest. May Jesus be alive in the people of this parish!
    SUGGESTION: Move OUR LORD in the Blessed Sacrament, from a corner of the altar, partially hidden behind a lectern/banner, to the center of the sanctuary, as so many other thriving churches have done. Also, hold easy to attend , FREE , Cursillo type retreats, in English and Spanish IN the church, for adults and teens. May the blessed Mother cover this parish with her mantle, and lead all to Jesus.
