From the Pastor's Desk

 Dear Friends,

        The singular joy of my life has been sharing my life with you. As you can see from the cover of the bulletin, I began my priesthood with you in 1958. In 1980, I returned as Pastor. God has blessed me in my retirement, that I could return and spend my retirement with you.

        I have always thought of you as family. God honored me by allowing me to share in the Baptisms of your children, their First Confession and First Eucharist. Later, I shared in their Confirmation and Wedding. Like you, I watched them grow up and have been very proud of who they became.

        As a priest, we are expected to pack up and move whenever the bishop has need of us. Living here with you has been my home. And I am grateful for the time I had with you.
