Welcome to Our Family!

Summer is often a transitional time for the parish staff. We are blessed to have three new additions to our Parish Staff and Family.
Please join me in welcoming Fr. Dennis Barlaan, Fr. Willie Arias and Deacon Ron. 

Welcome Father Dennis Barlaan, Parochial Vicar of Most Holy Redeemer

Screen Shot 2015-07-19 at 8.11.03 PM

I am happy to announce that we already have a new full-time Parochial Vicar to serve here at MHR. Fr. Dennis Barlaan received the official appointment from Bishop Lynch on July 1, 2015. I am so appreciative that Fr. Dennis accepted my personal invitation to assist me in this time of transition in our parish. Fr. Dennis served in the Archdiocese of San Francisco for ten years. I am aware that it was not easy for Fr. Dennis to leave his position in the beautiful city of San Francisco, but I am very grateful that he sacrificed his ministry in California to join our parish during a time of transition.

Welcome Father Willie Arias, Weekend Associate

Screen Shot 2015-07-19 at 8.20.52 PMI want to inform you that we have a bilingual priest, Fr. Willie Arias, who will be assisting us on a regular basis on weekends. Previously, he was part of the seminary staff in Miami and he is now assigned to Jesuit High School in Tampa. He expresses his willingness to assist us here at Most Holy Redeemer.

Please extend your warm welcome to Fr. Arias!



As we enter this period of change with clergy here at MHR, let us pray for Fr. Dennis, Fr. Willie, and Deacon Ron. Let us pray that they may embrace this new chapter of their ministry with joy and trust in God’s providential plan for them. Let us pray that God will bless them as they prepare to make MHR their new home.

Deacon RonI am very pleased to announce to you our newest staff member, Deacon Ron Rojas, who is coming on board & will replace Deacon Leo in the Hispanic ministry. Deacon Leo has officially retired. Our new Deacon, the Reverend Ron Rojas is perfectly bilingual and has been officially assigned to minister to the Hispanic and Anglo community of our parish. Deacon Ron has for so many years been a key member of our Diaconate program and Diocesan Hispanic program, and we are most fortunate to have him assigned to our parish. His talents that he has been blessed with will be a great asset to our parish family. We are most grateful to Deacon Leo for the wonderful ministry he gave to us over the years.
