My Dear Friends in Christ

I will not be with you this Sunday, Father's Day. In past, I've taken youth to Kanuga at this time of year; but this year Diane and I are going to Chicago to be with her father, who will celebrate his 94th birthday. I ask for your prayers as much of the family will be traveling to gather around and be with my father-in-law. 

Family is so important. This is true of our parish family as well. Perhaps I don't say it enough. I love you all and it is both a great joy and my honor to serve as your pastor. Actually, we are blessed by all who worship with us. You are an amazing parish family. Relish who you are and live lives of gratitude, praising God from whom all blessings flow.

 

Even a pastor must step back occasionally and recharge (something I'm told I'm not particularly good at). Fortunately, we are blessed by God through the many retired priests who give of themselves for us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Christ's Love,

Mark Andrew+
