Father served as an Army chaplain in both Bosnia and Germany. Father served as a prison chaplain at Calif Men's Colony (San Louis Obispo) and CalState Prison Solano... Father Francis has served as a parochial vicar in several parishes in our diocese: Holy Spirit in Fairfield, St. Charles in Sacramento, and at Good Shepherd in Elk Grove …Fr.

In our Gospel passage today Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do, I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”These are Powerful words from our Lord indeed. But what kind of peace is Jesus referring to? The peace that Jesus offers is greater than the superficial peace offered by our secular world which can be misleading, self-focusing, and accepting of injustices. The peace of Christ is true reconciliation with God and with each other. Reconciliation though the sacrament of confession restores our relationship with our creator and puts us in a condition such that we can cooperate with God in His plan for salvation.
