Fr. Dan Vanyo

05-19-2019Fr. Larry Merta

Many of you know and enjoyed Fr. Dan’s sojourn through Holy Cross over the last several months. Before he entered the seminary he was actually one of our parishioners and helped out our youth program while working as an RN. I am grateful to my brother priest for the generous support he gave us over the past year. We wish him all the best and please remember to offer prayers of supplication on his behalf as he gets settled in his new assignment as Parochial Vicar at San Francisco de Asis Catholic Church and the Northern Arizona University associate chaplain, both in Flagstaff.

Your Pastor,
Fr. Larry
