My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I want to thank each and every one of you for your kindness, patience, and understanding with me as we
continue to navigate the many firsts that come along with being a new priest.
This Easter season, beginning with Ash Wednesday up to and including the Easter weekend, being here with you to journey through Lent and now the Octave of Easter has been so very special to me. We always strive to have a beautiful liturgy for our Lord, and I think we were successful in that. Thanks to everyone who contributed in any way, your efforts and contributions of time and talents are greatly appreciated.
More importantly is our journey of faith. Together we have continued our quest in our desire to grow more in love and deeper in union with our Lord. Let us continue to make every effort in our quest of love and devotion to Jesus Christ.
On a personal note, I’d like to thank all of you who remembered me at Easter, with a card, gift or kind word. You are all important and a blessing to me. I hope and pray that I will be able to continue to move you in a direction that will bring you closer to God and enhance your lives through His grace and blessings.
May our Lord bless you this day and always!
