How was your week? I hope things are going well with all of you, and I hope
you had a wonderful time at the St. Patrick's Day events. Once again, Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of the Irish and Happy
St. Joseph's Day to all of the Italians too. I know it is a few days later, but hopefully you still carry on the spirit of St. Patrick
and St. Joseph until today. Yes, I did get some blessings and gifts from last weekend's St. Patrick's parade. Two huge
cabbages from Ms. Sabrina. I know how to cook them and Fr. Vinh will really enjoy them after they are cooked.
