Dallas, Texas -- Bishop Kevin J. Farrell celebrated Mass at The Highlands School recently, and the date was coincidentally the anniversary of his Episcopal ordination. He was ordained a bishop nine years ago in February 11, 2002.

“It was important I celebrate this anniversary precisely here,” he told those in attendance.

“Although the school community was eager to show our gratitude to him, his words were full of gratitude and encouragement to us,” said Regnum Christi consecrated woman Alexandra Hochhaus, formation director at The Highlands School.

Bishop Farrell commented during his homily at Mass, “So much of who I am as a priest is based on the same spirit that guides…you. I really do feel a part of the life of this community here,” he said, pointing out the presence of the Legionaries and consecrated women.

He went on to thank the school for its strong participation in the March for Life and giving witness to Catholic principles in the community.  At the same time, he acknowledged the challenges facing the school, recalling the Gospel story of Jesus sleeping in the storm, stating that “God will always be with us.”
