Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Please allow me to take a moment to say, "Thank you" for the love and support you have offered me for the past 18 years.
I am grateful for the blessing of having been called to serve you at Holy Spirit. I hope I have nourished you in The Word and helped you grow in our faith. You have certainly made me a better priest and better pastor.
We have shared many milestones together, from birth to new life. I hold every memory in my heart and will remember each of them always - some with joy; some with sadness.
As I begin my new assignment, please know I will keep all of you in my prayers and hope you will do the same for me.
May God continue to bless the people and parish of Holy Spirit with every grace you need.
Very Sincerely Yours In Christ,
