            Welcome Home! - A Note from Our Pastor


Hello, Hola, Pagbati everyone. I am Fr. Mike Bucciarelli newly appointed pastor of Our Lady of the Mountains Parish. It seems like I have come full circle since I was ordained a priest in 1975 in the Post Chapel at Ft. Huachuca. I grew up in a military family and entered Regina Cleri Seminary (high school) in Tucson in 1963. (Regina Cleri is now St. Augustine High School.) After ordination I have served in parishes in Tucson, Mammoth, San Manuel, and for the last 10 years have been pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Benson. I have also served as co-Vocation Director; advocate, judge and defender of the bond on the Marriage Tribunal; Board of Consultors, television station; Diocesan Pastoral Council; RCIA board; and I am currently Vicar of Cochise Vicariate.

I am delighted to be back in Sierra Vista as I feel like I have come home again. I am looking forward to serving the community here at Our Lady of the Mountains as I follow in the footsteps of my friends, Fr. Bob Bryerton, Fr. Bob Brazaskas and Fr. Ariel Lustan. Since they have done so much to serve and build this beautiful community, I know that I have big shoes to fill and that humbles me. On the other hand, I am excited to be working with All Saints School. After 39 years of priesthood, this will be my first experience working with a school and I hope and pray for your support, help and prayers as I begin my ministry at Our Lady of the Mountains and All Saints School.
Fr. Mike



My dear friends in Christ,

I wish to invite you to support our Fund Campaign for the construction of our Parish Rectory. The estimated cost of this priestís house is between $250,000.00 - $275,000.00, fully furnished. It is a three-bedroom house that gives provisions for a future associate priest and a guest room. This will be built on the northwest corner of the Church property. We hope to start the construction in the first quarter of 2015.

This project was launched last January 5, 2013 and received an overwhelming response from our Parishioners and good hearted friends of the Parish. But, of course, we are still way far from reaching our goal. We will be posting periodic updates so you will know of our progress in this venture.

If you wish to offer your monetary gifts for the realization of this project, please stop by or call the Parish Office at (520) 378-2720. You may pledge for one year, two years, three years or give a one time gift. Thank you so much for your generosity. Hereís the perspective of the Parish Rectory:
