Labouré Alum, Nelson Cintra, Receives Summer Assignment

Hey guys, I have some good news to share with you: I just received my summer assignment. I’ll be in Immaculate Conception Parish in Buhl and its attached mission St. Catherine’s in Hagerman. Population of Buhl is 4200 and of Hagerman is 850. Here’s a note from my vocation director:
 
“There is a Portuguese speaking community of considerable size in the parish and the area.  Part of your assignment is to make contact and become familiar with this community.  They will be thrilled, I believe, to have the hope of a Portuguese speaking priest!”
 
I’m very blessed to have this opportunity. It wouldn’t be happening if it weren’t for Laboure. Please continue to pray for me. Count on my daily prayers for you.
 
Yours in Christ,
Nelson
