Seminarian Michael So, who has spent a year interning at St. Irenaeus Parish in Cypress, will leave the Parish shortly to return to his theological studies.
Michael will continue his studies at St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park, CA, in September.
Parish members were able to say their good-byes and wish him God speed in his studies after Mass on Saturday, Aug. 4, and Sunday, Aug. 5.
He spoke briefly at the end of Mass.
He thanked parishioners for their support, asked forgiveness for any insult he may have offered and assured them of his continuing prayers on their behalf.
He also invited those in the audience to consider a religious vocation, giving himself and the presiding priest, Father Vanancio Amidar, as examples.
