Dear Incarnation Church and School Families,
It is an honor to serve you as Administrator Pro Tem (Latin for temporary) here at Incarnation Church despite these challenging circumstances. Currently, I am the Director of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and I live in residence at Holy Family Church here in Glendale. I have been ordained for 15 years, including Pastor of St. Helen Church in South Gate for five years before beginning in the Office of Vocations five years ago. Although I will only be in this position for a short time until a long-term Administrator is assigned to the parish, my plan is to support the wonderful and dedicated priests, deacons, staff, and volunteers in the great work they are doing at Incarnation. I will continue with my duties in the Vocations Office as I also serve you here at the parish.
Let us keep each other in prayer during this time of transition for your parish family.
May Mary, Mother of the Church, and St. Joseph, Universal Patron of the Church, intercede for us before their Son Jesus, the Incarnate Word of God and Savior of the World.
In the Heart of Christ,
Father Sam Ward
We mourn the loss of our friend Donna Ioppini to cancer today. Donna served the parish and touched us in so many ways, as a religious education teacher, a singer, a lector, and so active with the Heart of Jesus Prayer Community. May she rest in peace. “Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis ” May her dear soul sit at the right hand of God.
We are sad to report the passing of long-time parish member Rita Adams who went home to the Lord today after a long illness. Rita was a dedicated member of the 10:30 Mass choir for most of thirty years. Rita, with her wonderful cheerful attitude, ministered, encouraged and mentored all who had the honor to know her. She was “Mom” to all of us.
