During these summer months, our parish continues to be filled with all kinds of activity. The past two weekends we had farewell celebrations for Fr. Marco and Fr. Joseph. It was great to have so many parishioners here to pay tribute to these two fine priests. I will miss both of them more than I can say; we formed a good team, and we have enjoyed our ministry together. I would like to express publicly my thanks to them for all they have done here. Let’s continue to support them with our prayers as they move on to new assignments.

We anxiously await the arrival of our two new parochial vicars, Fr. Mauro and Fr. Aristotle. With you, I look forward to welcoming them to our great community. I’m sure it will be fun to get to know them, and I have no doubt that they will be wonderful additions to our parish.

Meanwhile, this weekend I will observe a special day of my own: Sunday, June 25, will be the 39th anniversary of my priestly ordination. I thank God for these years of ministry, and I thank God that you and I are able to spend some of these years together. God is good to us!

Gratefully Yours,
