A joyous 20 years of service

On Sunday, December 13, 2015, we celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Fr. Marinaldo Batista’s ordination. Fr. Marinaldo is from Brazil and has been serving Our Lady of Fatima parish and the Portuguese community for the last year and a half. About 300 people showed up for a beautiful luncheon and joyful celebration of the love and bond of affection between Fr. Marinaldo and the people he serves. Truly the saying of the early Christian communities hold true: “See how they love one an other.”

May God continue to bless Fr. Marinaldo’s ministry as he continues to seek and do His will in the Diocese of Victoria.
