Hello from Father Albert

St Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church, John Day, OR

I am Father Albert Lakra, from India. Presently I am working in the Diocese of Baker in Eastern Oregon, USA. I am the pastor of St Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church at John Day in Grant County, which covers 4,800 square miles. I have two mission churches to cover, in Monument and Dale/Long Creek, which I visit weekly, covering approximately 165 miles to reach them, and sometimes in snowy or icy roads, especially in the winter months. There are altogether about 90 families in my parish with a total number of 130 parishioners. The parish of St Elizabeth welcomes you all, and I will use this blog to keep you updated on a regular basis with my Sunday homilies. The picture above shows my parish church in John Day.


  1. Ur homilies have been quite helpful to me. I am barely three years in the ministry. Was ordained in early 2012 for the diocese of sokoto in Nigeria. I am having troubles finding ur homilies for the year B cycle. Well done for the good work. God bless you
