Please join in joyfully and gratefully welcoming our new Parochial Vicar, Father Michael Coveyou.
In the coming weeks, please take the time to introduce yourselves. He prefers to be called Father Mike as he is in his own words, “like my father, just a son of a simple farmer.” Please keep Father Mike in your prayers as he comes into our care and we into his.
Father Mike was ordained by the Most Reverend Bishop Luis Rafael Zarama, Bishop of Raleigh, on June 23 2018 at Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral. Below are some highlights from the Mass of Ordination (Holy Orders).

It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another. –John 15:16-17
